Governor Abbott’s COVID-19 disaster declaration is still in effect. Governor Abbott declared a disaster due to the COVID-19 pandemic on March 13, 2020. A gubernatorial disaster declaration expires thirty days after its issuance, unless renewed, and Governor Abbott renewed the declaration on September 7, 2020.

As we all know, HDS has been monitoring the fluid situation with the COVID-19 pandemic.  HDS is open for driving appointments only.  You can make driving appointments through the Schedule to Drive link.

Due to the COVID-19 response, HDS is launching our first ever full online virtual class starting on June 1st. The virtual class will be in full effect if the state of Texas has not returned to normal 100% normal operations.
