We’re getting ready to start driver’s ed for 2 or 3 of our oldest children, and I have a question for anyone who has done the parent-taught option, particularly in Texas.
Texas has 10 approved courses that we can use. Prices vary tremendously. Some offer sibling discounts, and others don’t. All insist that you must pay separately for each child.
We already ordered and received the packet from the state, and the instructions therein say that we must “buy or obtain” approved course materials. The word obtain suggests to me that we can get it used – or reuse it for multiple children.
Furthermore, as far as I can see, the state doesn’t require a receipt, certificate of completion, or other proof that we actually bought a separate course for each child. It only requires logs, affidavits, etc. which are provided in the packet we ordered from the state.
So correct me if I’m wrong, but provided we don’t violate any copyrights, can’t we use the same single purchased course for all 3 children? If they don’t consume the consumables, and if we don’t choose an online course that specifies one student/login, we should be able to save 67%. Right? Have you done this?
I can and will call the local driver’s license department and ask the bureaucrat on the other end of the line, but I’ve spoken to her once already and to be frank, I have more confidence in a mom who has been-there-done-that.
So, my question:
Can you/did you use a single purchase of a driver’s ed course to teach more than one of your children?
And a bonus question:
If yes, and if you have one of the courses from this list, are you interested in selling it?
