COVID-19: The current public health crisis is having an impact on teen driver’s education across the state. To help driver’s education programs continue to provide education during this time, we are allowing virtual classroom instruction for driver's education. In addition, certain requirements in administrative rule 761-634.4 have been temporarily waived to provide flexibility for driver education providers seeking to continue providing the classroom instruction virtually during this time. The waiver also allows a student to begin the classroom portion of a course after they pass the instruction permit knowledge test, but before they have obtained their instruction permit.
We have issued guidance regarding driver’s education options to all public schools and private driver’s education companies. If you have questions about how they are choosing to provide driver’s education during this time we suggest you reach out to them directly.
