Default On the driving instruction question

Driver's training in the US is not nearly as lengthy -- or as expensive -- as in Europe (living there for three years, believe me, I know!). As an adult over 24 yrs, you are not even required to take driving instruction (and no red "A" in your window either!) But as a practical matter, it would be difficult to pass the driving test without the instruction.

My recommendation is to take the written instruction online before you ever get here. It even includes the written test, so one less thing to do when you go to the state office for the driving test. Then, when you get here, take the six hours of in-the-car instruction and you will be set.

Google "Austin driving schools" for some options for the online part. Good luck on your adventure!

Thanks scm53 for this useful information.

So true Europe/France is not only expensive and the process is very long.

I am sure it will be an adventure in the first few months. As for passing the DL test, i will need to give a social security number. So guess right now I will prepare for it ans once there then i ll pass the test.

Another area just north of Aboretum and very family oriented is Cedar Park. Lot's of Dell and other IT related employees live there and commute south. Very good public schools (Leander ISD) and Goddard School has good reputation as preschool.
