At HADS, our initial classroom training involves establishing that a driver’s license is a true privilege, and that an automobile is a potential 5000 pound bullet.
We teach that operating a motor vehicle involves potential life-altering decisions each second that elapses. We believe that this is the most important course that can influence a young person’s future, as well as the biggest responsibility they will have undertaken to date.
A collision has the potential to take away all that we value most in life: Family, Health, Time, & Money.
Driver Education is required in Texas for anyone under the age of 18 who wishes to get a drivers license. Our teen driver education program, curriculum and instructors are State-Approved and licensed by the Texas Education Agency (License C#1715).

During the school year we usually start a new teen driver education class on the first Monday of each month. The class days during the school year are Monday through Thursday with a slight variation during the holiday months.
Our class times during the school year are 4:30-6:30 p.m. or 6:30-8:30p.m. During the summer, we usually have three different summer session and two different class times and held Monday through Friday.
Each student will receive a Texas Driver Handbook on the first day of class and the first three days students will be covering information from the Handbook for the learners permit test.
All teens must be 15 years old or 2 months away from 15th birthday to take our Teen Driver Education Classes. No exceptions!

Driving is scheduled in class by classroom teacher after the student receives his/her permit from the Department of Public Safety. Students will have to show classroom teacher his/her permit before student can schedule driving. Driving times are typically available before and after class or weekends.
