How recent is this information??
Well, there was an update to the update. I was told a month ago that students would have to order packets and the instructor could not. But now I hear that instructors can still order the packets because they had a bunch of them in stock.
It is a continual update there... but it should not be a problem as you can take the class without the packet... you don't even need the packet to complete the training. When you complete the training just order the packet and fill it in when you get it. You can get it notarized for free at your local bank/credit union and you can get your pictures and fingerprints from the link on the DPS website (or at DPS/Sheriffs Officer). You have a year or two to complete it.....
Just ask the instructor to discount you the cost of the fingerprints ($10) and the cost of the pictures (Read the packet and do it yourself on a good printer) Otherwise, get good passport photos from the local drug store and use them.
P.S. you can still use the old T100 and old packets until you are out of them.... but NO REFUNDS! I only have 5 of them and will use them this weekend.
