Trouble with your ID Questions
You can find help with all three of these below.
Of course you can call our Technical Support number — 877 826 6339 — at any time if you need more help.
Update Your Browser
In many cases, an updated browser can help with your internet experience. Click on any of the following links to download the most recent version.
Microsoft Edge, the new browser for Windows 10, should update itself as long as you keep Windows 10 up-to-date. If you think you might need to update both Windows 10 and Edge, take these steps.
Update your Video Player
The video files in our online course are in WMV format.
This means that the many machines that won’t play Flash movies files can still play our videos. WMV is Windows Media Video, and its video files should play on all Windows-based machines. If your Windows Media Player is up-to-date, you should have no problems.
If you’re taking our online course on a Mac device, you may need to install Flip4Mac, a WMV-player extention for Quicktime. It can be downloaded for free and installed on your Mac device, making it possible for you to play WMV files.
For customers unfamiliar with the download and install process, follow these quick and easy steps. Click any image to enlarge it, if you wish.

Trouble with your ID Questions
The state of Texas requires that we prove it is actually you taking the online course. We do this by asking identification questions (ID questions) based on your driver’s license and your license plate information that you provided when your registered.
If your answers are marked incorrect and you don’t think they should be, please call customer support at 877 826 6339 (select 3 from the menu for online customer service).
There are a few circumstances that may cause this to occur:
- out-of-state license (welcome to Texas!)
- out-of-state license plate
- recently issued driver’s license
- recently issued license plate
- typographical error when you registered (yes, it happens and it is no big deal…). Call us and we can fix it.
If for some reason we can’t prove it’s actually you taking the course, don’t worry. We can have you print our ID Affidavit, and have it notarized with your signature, and fax it to 214-446-6222. This is just a ‘legal’ way of proving it is you taking the course.
