Home Training Requirements

Parents may choose to train their 16/17 year old through home training instead of using a commercial driving school for all of the required 30 classroom hours and 40 hours of on the road instruction.  Home trained teens must first obtain a Learner Permit, and complete the 8 hour Safe Driving Practices Class at a licensed commercial or secondary driving school. 

If a parent/guardian chooses to provide home training for any portion of the required hours of training, the following requirements must be met:

  1. The equivalent of 30 hours classroom training which must include the 8-hour Safe Driving Practices Class offered at commercial and secondary driving schools, including a 2-hour Mandatory Parent Training.
  2. 40 hours of practice driving with a “Qualified Trainer.”
