Welcome To Coastal Driving

(We Are Operating Under Coronavirus (Covid-19) Conditions)



Welcome To Our Site:   COASTAL DRIVING 


We are opened for in-car driving & in-car testing only.  You must have and wear your own mask to participate.


NOTICE:  Effective Monday, April 27, if you are 16 or 17 years old, you will not need a VOE nor will you have to get your documents notarized until further notice.  You will need, however, a DE-964, a learners permit that is at least 6 months old, an Impact Certificate that is less than 90 days old, a document showing that you have passed a third party skills test, a form DL-14b, and a money order or check for $10.00.  All of this is sent to DPS and several days later, you will receive your permanent driving license.


We still are having on-line classes.  Ours prices range from $100.00 - $495.00

You can sign up for the on-line classes at anytime.


(NOTE)  If you take the on-line classes now, when DPS opens again, you can be ready to go there.

DPS offices closed Thursday, March 19 until further notice from Governor Greg Abbott.  When he lifts the State Of Disaster Declaration, the DPS offices will open again:  https://www.dps.texas.gov/director_staff/media_and_communications/pr/2020/0319a 


When Governor Abbott opens the DPS Offices up again, can you imagine how long it will take if you wanted to take the behind-the-wheel in-car test?  When it closed in March, the wait was about 8 weeks.  When DPS reopens sometimes in the future, can you imagine how long you'll have to wait to sign up before you can actually take the in-car test?


We at Coastal Driving can test you, behind-the-wheel probably the same day instead of waiting for weeks and weeks.   Call us at 713-227-2099,  e-mail us, fax us at 713-671-2099, or mail us at 6702 Lyons Ave#3, or drop by the school for costs of getting a license.
