Because of the COVID-19 crisis and temporary closing of buildings, the Texas Department of Public Safety has begun offering an alternative license issuance process for Texas learner license holders.
Due to school closures statewide, Verification of Enrollment (VOE) documents will not be required for current learner license holders to have the additional driver restriction removed.
Requirements for those with learner’s permits – minors
The above applies to those who are 16 or 17 years old. If learner permit holders are 18 years or older, different requirements are necessary for issuance. You can find those HERE.
All documents must be mailed or emailed directly to DPS. Once all documents are received, DPS will issue a new license without the additional driver restriction.
