EPCSO Deputies Host Second ‘Driver’s License Course’ in Far East El Paso

The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office East Montana Patrol Station will be hosting their second driver’s license course to help unlicensed drivers become licensed.

The program is called the “Sheriff’s Office Driver’s License Academy” and is targeted towards adult citizens of El Paso County that have not taken or never been able to pass the written driver’s license test.

The East Montana Patrol Station COP Representative covers the Texas Driver’s License Handbook which include the following topics: How to apply for your TX driver’s license, signals, signs, and markers, signaling, passing, and turning, speed limits, Zero Tolerance Law, giving way to pedestrians, registering your vehicle, changing your address and becoming an organ donor.

During the course, students are given pop quizzes and exams to ensure that they are comprehending the material. The class is bilingual to ensure that no citizen is left behind.

After the completion of the course, the Sheriff’s Office will encourage and oversee the students’ driver’s license application process.

EPCSO Officials say, “The Sheriff’s Office believes that by empowering the citizens with the knowledge needed to pass the driver’s license exam, we reduce the number of unlicensed drivers.”

The course is free, however EPCSO officials remind community members that it is not a driving school replacement, and ask that all participants be over 21 years old.

This session, classes are every Tuesday from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in Sparks at 106 Peyton Road.

Class size is limited to 20 students, and residents interested in signing up or needing more information can contact Deputy Garcia the coordinator for this course at the East Montana Patrol Station 915-856-4875.
