To apply for a Texas driver's license and take the exam, you must provide proof of Social Security number. You must also provide a vehicle in which to take the driving test, as well as auto insurance and registration for the vehicle. You need a completed driver's license application from the DPS website and cash or a check to cover the fee. Credit cards aren't accepted.
