Forms That Are No Longer Required

The Parent Taught Drivers Ed program can change drastically every few years. Some forms are not required anymore. While some websites or even some DPS offices may tell you they are required, they are not.

  • Form Dl-91A: The Classroom Instruction Log
    • At ParentTaught.com, this is the most commonly asked-for form that is no longer required. You may be surprised to hear we have never issued one to a student. Our company was started after this form was removed. This log was used to track the 32 hours of required classroom instruction. You can relax knowing that Texas said goodbye to this form, and it is not required anymore!
  • Form DL-90A: PTDE Program Guide Request Form
    • No longer required as well!
  • Form DL-90B Behind-the-Wheel Instruction-Driver Education Affidavit
    • Another form that is no longer required.

What should you do if the DPS is asking for a form that is no longer required?

If the DPS says you need another form (for example, forms DL-90A, DL-90B, or DL-91A), please email TPSTprogram@dps.texas.gov with the full name of your child, the DPS location, and the issue you are having. These forms have been phased out. Please note: We cannot resolve issues with your local DPS office.
