  • Check-in: Sunday, June 23: 1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.

    Check-out: Wednesday, July 3: noon



    Program Description:


    In Texas, adults 18-24 years old, may complete a Texas Adult Driver's Education (ADE) course before getting a driver's license.

    This 100% communication accessible I Can! Drive program for Texas adults with certified driving instructors using American Sign Language, includes 6 hours of classroom instruction, and no behind-the-wheel training requirements. (Some driving practice to visit local attractions may be provided along with our I Can! Drive ADE course, if time permits.)

    Interpreters are provided for participants preferring oral instruction or other modes of communication.

    Participants will also learn proper automobile and tire maintenance, the availability of alternative transportation methods, and how to plan trips using public transportation.

    In order to obtain a Texas Driver’s License, participants must:

    • Attend both full weeks of instruction to complete all course hours;
    • Pass a written exam, and
    • Pass a vision screening at the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS).

    Note:

    • Participation in the ADE course does not guarantee that each participant will pass the required tests to receive their adult driver’s license.
    • There will be no refunds, and neither the Educational Resource Center on Deafness or Texas School for the Deaf (TSD) is responsible for participants who do not pass the required tests.

    Pre-requisites:

    • Participants must bring with them:
      • A current vision exam, and
      • Any prescribed glasses or contacts for the vision screening at the Texas DPS.

    Participants are assumed to be staying the night on campus during the duration of the program unless we are notified otherwise during the registration period. The legal guardian will be responsible for dropping off and picking up participants at 8:00 a.m. and 7:30 p.m., respectively.

    Program Fee:

    $450 per participant. Financial Aid available, first come first serve.
