Bam's Driving SchoolFAQ's
Are all the driving schools listed on your website fully-certified by the Texas DMV to offer behind-the-wheel training courses in Texas?
The driving school directory on our website is for your convenience only, and we cannot absolutely guarantee that every driving school listed is currently certified to offer driving training courses in Texas. We suggest you contact the Texas DMV to make sure a particular driver training school is licensed before you enroll in their driver training course.
I heard that parents can fill the role of driving supervisor in Texas, so taking a Houston driver training course like the one Bam's Driving School offers is not necessary. Is that true?
You should contact the Texas DMV or a licensed driver training school like Bam's Driving School and ask them. While parent-taught driving instruction is permitted in some states, many states do NOT allow it.
What if I don't know how to drive a manual-shift automobile? Does Bam's Driving School have automatic-shift vehicles that I can drive when I do my behind-the-wheel training?
If you're taking a Houston Texas behind-the-wheel training class, chances are you don't know how to drive ANY vehicle yet-- manual or automatic. However, if you prefer an automatic vehicle then you should tell Bam's Driving School that prior to registering for the course in order to make sure they can accommodate you.
I live in a small mountain town, where there are a lot of small, unpaved roads. Will my driver training with Bam's Driving School include being taught how to drive in rural areas? Or do they just offer training for urban driving?
Most local driving schools will likely want their students to know how to drive safely in the local area. Therefore, chances are good that the driver training you receive from Bam's Driving School will include handling dirt roads and mountain driving.
After I turn 14, will I be eligible to get my instruction permit so I can begin to learn how to drive?
It depends on which state you live in, however most states unfortunately require you to be at least 15 (or sometimes 15 1/2) before you can be issued a learner's permit. We suggest that you contact a local driver training school such as Bam's Driving School or the Texas DMV office to learn more about the minimum age requirement for driving in Texas.
Do I have to take a Houston Texas classroom or online drivers education course before I can enroll in a behind-the-wheel training course through Bam's Driving School?
This requirement varies by state but most states do require new teen-aged drivers to take BOTH a classroom-based defensive driving course (generally 30 hours in length) AND a behind-the-wheel training course. You should ask Bam's Driving School if they offer one or both programs.
I am looking to register for a Houston Texas behind-the-wheel training course. Can Bam's Driving School assist me with this?

Is there a law in Texas that requires me to take driver training in order to get my driver's license?
Yes. State law in Texas mandates that all teen-agers successfully complete an approved driver training course before receiving a Texas driver's license.
Will Texas allow me to enroll in a behind-the-wheel training course before I actually receive my instruction permit?
