Can my friends ride with me after I get my Texas learners permit or drivers license?
If you hold a Texas learners permit, no passengers are permitted to ride with you except the required supervising driver who's at least 21 years of age sitting in the passengers seat.  (WARNING:  if you are caught driving without a licensed driver, don't expect to be driving again any time soon).  Family members may be allowed to ride with you, however you will need to check with the Texas DPS for complete details.

Learners Permit Holders--you may never drive alone--PERIOD.  You must always be accompanied by a licensed driver who's at least 21 years old seated in the front passenger seat who is actively supervising your driving the entire time (if you violate this law and drive unsupervised, you may be kissing your driving privileges good-bye).

Drivers License Holders--if you're under 18, there are still some restrictions (though not as extensive).  During the first twelve (12) months after you receive your provisional drivers license, you may not drive at all between the hours of 12 midnight and 5am unless you are commuting to work, school, or are handling a medical emergency.  After this twelve (12)-month probationary period has passed, these restrictions are lifted.
