Driver Education LH



Learner’s Permit Required

One of the most common questions we seem to receive is, “Do all students need a learner’s permit to take the driver safety school course?” If the student is going to be driving on the public roadways as part of the course, the easy answer is, ‘Yes’. Almost all students can get a School Learning Permit.
