Driver’s education, parents
DRIVER’S EDUCATION – Amends existing law to allow parents to provide on-road driver’s training for their children and to require the Idaho Digital Learning Alliance to make certain driver education curriculum available to all Idaho students.

RS31203 / H0531

This legislation would allow qualifying parents and legal guardians to be private educators for Class D Driver's Training Instruction Permits. This legislation would benefit citizens from rural areas who must travel long distances to take their children to required public or private driver's education instructors and provide equal opportunity for children of all income levels to test for a driver's license by reducing the need to pay expensive fees for private education.

Idaho Transportation Department has estimated this would cost $96,000 to the General Fund, comprising of 12 weeks, or 480 hours, of work for two developers.
