The State of Texas allows institutions of higher learning to offer an approved driver education course on campus.  Here is the statute:

Sec. 51.308. DRIVER EDUCATION. A driver education course for the purpose of preparing students to obtain a driver’s license may be offered by an institution of higher education, as defined by Section 61.003, with the approval of the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation.

Added by Acts 1995, 74th Leg., ch. 1009, Sec. 2, eff. Sept. 1, 1995. Renumbered from Education Code Sec. 51.307 by Acts 1997, 75th Leg., ch. 165, Sec. 31.01(19), eff. Sept. 1, 1997.

Amended by:

Acts 2015, 84th Leg., R.S., Ch. 1044 (H.B. 1786), Sec. 2, eff. September 1, 2015.


Students also may take an approved (by TDLR) online driver education course, such as the approved course for those in Texas ages 18 to 24, that you can see here.
