Why take a driver education course?

The primary benefits of participating in a driver education program include:

  • To apply for and receive a Restricted Permit in Kansas at age 15, the student must have successfully completed and passed a driver education program (classroom and drive time).
  • Instruction includes reviewing the law manual, handling emergency situations, vehicle maintenance, vehicle controls, planning a trip, operating a vehicle on the roadways, parking, how to obtain a license or permit and the responsibilities of owning a vehicle.
  • Four to six lessons behind the wheel with a certified instructor based on student's ability to pass the competencies for each lesson.
  • Some insurance companies give a discount to students/families that have completed a driver education program.

What you need to know

  • Students must be at least 14 years old. It is recommended that a student have an instructional permit prior to class, but it is NOT necessary.
  • We recommend that students experience behind-the-wheel driving with a parent/adult prior to the first driving lesson. Students should be able to start and stop a vehicle and make left- and right-hand turns in a residential setting.
  • For more information, see our frequently asked questions.
