- Your Texas learner license or Texas driver license with B restriction (Note: if lost, one approved identity document is required)
- The driving test fee or the payment receipt if you have already paid. (Note: payment is good for only 90 days - date of expiration is listed on the payment receipt. You will be required to make payment again after expiration.)

- Parent Taught Driver Education Certificate (PTDE-964); OR

- Proof of current liability insurance for the vehicle to be used for the road test. (Note: applicant cannot be listed as an excluded driver and must be listed as a driver on a Named Driver Policy); AND
- A vehicle for the road test that meets all of these requirements:
- Current registration sticker;
- Two license plates; one plate affixed to both the front and rear bumpers
- No unusual mechanical issues (such as having doors that do not open from inside or outside the vehicle – this will result in failure of the vehicle inspection); AND

If you use a rental vehicle for the test, the person taking the driving test must be listed on the rental agreement as an authorized driver. You must show proof that the rental vehicle is covered by liability insurance either by accepting the liability damage waiver when you rent the vehicle or by showing proof that your personal auto liability insurance covers rental vehicles. NO additional passengers will be allowed in the vehicle during the driving test.
