Texas Teen Drivers (ITTD) Program Effective September 1, 2015

Effective September 1, 2015, Texas teen drivers are required to complete a new program that emphasizes the ever increasing dangers of distracted driving. They must complete the new requirement before they will be eligible to take the driving skills exam.

What is the Purpose of the ITTD Program?

The Impact Texas Teen Drivers (ITTD) program has been developed by Texas Department of Public Safety (TxDPS). Its goal is to save lives through education and awareness, particularly about distracted driving. By educating young or new drivers about the dangers of distracted driving, TxDPS wants to reduce the risk of young drivers being involved in automobile crashes.

What is the New ITTD Program?

ITTD is a two-hour video about safe driving. It is a prerequisite to and the last step before taking the road test. The video contains eight (8) different modules that you can view independently.

ITTD is NOT part of the 32 classroom hours of Driver Education that you must take as a teen driver. It must be viewed after you completed your Teen Driver Education course.

You can get the video through a Third Party Skills Testing (TPST) authorized school or TxDPS website. Follow this link: Impact Texas Teen Drivers website.

Who Must Complete the ITTD Program?

If you are scheduled to take the road test on September 1, 2015 or later, you must view the ITTD video and receive a completion certificate before you can take the test. The road test must be taken within 90 days of the certificate.
