DPS Questions Home School Family

While certain documentation requirements are placed on those attempting to obtain a driver permit, including home schoolers, the Department of Public Safety employees do not have a right to question home schoolers regarding how long they have been home schooling, what curriculum is used in their home school, or other extended questioning.

Recently a THSC Association member family who was attempting to obtain a driver permit for their daughter encountered a DPS employee who questioned them beyond what is required or needed. Tim Lambert responded with a letter, clarifying the rights of this home school family.
