Texas Education Code
Sec. § 1001.354
Locations Authorized for Driving Safety Course


A driving safety course may be taught at a driving safety school if the school is approved by the department.


A driving safety school may teach an approved driving safety course by an alternative method that does not require students to be present in a classroom if the department approves the alternative method. The department may approve the alternative method if:


the department determines that the approved driving safety course can be taught by the alternative method; and


the alternative method includes testing and security measures that are at least as secure as the measures available in the usual classroom setting.


On approval, the alternative method is considered to satisfy the requirements of this chapter for a driving safety course.


A location at which a student receives supplies or equipment for a course under Subsection (b) is considered a classroom of the school providing the course.
