Per Utah Driver License Division, all first-time applicants for Utah Driver’s Licenses under 19 years must complete a full Driver Education Course. Those over the age of 19 years wishing to waive the learner’s permit holding period are also required to show proof of Driver’s Education completion. A complete Driver Education program includes classroom training and a state minimum Behind wheels training course. Salt Lake International Driving School offers both of these in two settings. Students will enroll in an online 30-hour self-paced classroom material to be completed at the student’s convenience. Students will also complete their 6 hours of the wheels skills training concurrently or consecutively. If a student already possesses a learner’s permit at enrollment, the student can enroll for the online class and attend the skills training sessions concurrently. If the student does not have a learner’s permit at enrollment, the student will complete the online classroom to prepare for the state written test. Once the student is issued a student learner’s permit, they will schedule their behind-the-wheels skills sessions and complete them consecutively.
This complete Driver Education program is optional for students over 19 years unless they intend to waive the minimum learners permit holding period, at which point, this course becomes mandatory.
