According to Texas Department of Licensure and Regulation’s (TDLR) website, Incident Management (IM) and Private Property (PP) Towing Operators are required to be certified by TRAA’s National Drivers Certification Program®, or TDLR deemed equivalent, before they are eligible for an IM or PP license (https://www.tdlr.texas.gov/towing/apply-tow-operator.htm).
Online testing is ultra-convenient as participants are able test from virtually any location with secure internet access, a web-cam, microphone, and privacy. Note, most laptops and desktop computers these days meet the requirements. Testing appointments are available 24/7 and results are available immediately after finishing the test. Many companies have taken to setting up an office or conference room designated specifically for testing, while others prefer their drivers test from home during off hours. Once you’ve got a computer in mind to use, you can check that it meets the requirement at the following link: http://www.proctoru.com/testitout/.
Once you’ve passed our Level 1-Light Duty certification exam, your credentials will be automatically uploaded to TDLR’s website. Once TDLR has your confirmed certification credentials, they can commence with your IM or PP license application.
