How many behind-the-wheel hours do I need?

The state requires that you do 44 hours of behind-the-wheel instruction and practice. The behind-the-wheel hours are divided as follows: You must do 14 hours of behind-the-wheel instruction with a professional driving instructor. If you want to complete these 14 hours of behind-the-wheel instruction with a parent instructor, click here for directions on the steps you’ll need to take. You must also do 30 hours of behind-the-wheel practice with any licensed adult 21 years old or older (10 of these hours must be done at night). You can use this 30-hour log to keep track of these hours. You do not need to present any logs to DPS. If you want a guide to completing the 30 hours of behind-the-wheel practice, you can use the 30-Hour Behind-the-Wheel Guide from the state of Texas here.
