VOE Requests for Driver’s Ed


NOTE: Please allow 24 hours to process your request.

The VOE is a form required by Texas Department of Public Safety (TxDPS) to provide official documentation of a student's enrollment and attendance status when applying for an instruction permit or driver license to operate a motor vehicle. The DPS requires VOEs with original signatures. 
VOE Request Process

  • VOE requests submitted by 1:00 pm are typically available for pick-up within 24 hours. VOE requests submitted after 1:00 pm will roll-over to the next business day request list, therefore available approximately two days after request. 
  • Pick-Up is ONLY available before school, during lunch, and immediately at the end of the school day in 1st floor office.

VOE Eligibility 

1) The school considers the student currently enrolled at the time the student applies for the VOE, and 

2) the school awarded the student credit for each class the semester prior to application for the VOE. If the student was not awarded credit for each class the semester prior to application for the VOE, the school should examine attendance records for the semester prior to application for the VOE and determine whether the student was present 90% of the time each class was offered. If so, the VOE may be issued. If the student did not receive credit and did not attend 90% of their classes, the school attendance committee and/or administration may approve a plan establishing conditions for the student to meet in order to receive a VOE." 

Austin High School's attendance committee has established a plan for all students that includes:

  • Students must have already recovered credits lost due to the Compulsory Attendance Law.

  • Students current attendance in all classes mut be above 90%

Please have your students check in with their assistant principal for specific information on their attendance as it relates to their VOE.
