New driver ed program now required for teens

The Texas Department of Public Safety announced last week the implementation of the Impact Texas Teen Driver program, which is a new requirement for driver license applicants who complete a teen driver education course.

The two-hour ITTD program contains several videos that provide awareness about the dangers of distracted driving.

“Driving is one of the most dangerous things teens do on a daily basis, and it should command their undivided attention,” said DPS Director Steven McCraw.
