This Driver’s Ed Apprenticeship Program includes what you need to certify as a Driver’s Ed Instructor in the State of Idaho.
Classroom – 30 hours
Our program begins by enrolling in our 30 hour online class. We will review thoughout the class if you have questions.
You will be required to complete our online class. You can begin at any time but it must be completed before you begin your in-car training.
Beginning behind-the-wheel instruction – 12+ hours
During your beginning in-car instruction you will spend 6 hours observing students being instructed by a certified instructor behind-the-wheel. During this time you will be in the back seat and evaluate the student driver. After each drive we will review our evaluations.
Once you have completed your beginning in-car training and 6 hours of in-car observation you will begin your independant behind-the-wheel instruction. During this phase you will be in the passenger seat. You will spend a minimum of 6 hours with a certified instructor riding along in the back seat.
Intermediate Behind-the-wheel – 36 hours
Once you have satisfactorily completed your beginning behind-the-wheel phase you will begin driving students independently and review your results with a certified instructor.
Advanced Behind-the Wheel – 12 hours
This is your final evaluation period. During the phase of your apprenticeship you will be accompanied by a certified instructor who will complete a thorough evaluation of your final 6 hours and complete certification.
When you have completed your apprenticeship, you will receive a certificate of completion and you will be able to work for any private driving school or start your own driving business.
Being accepted into our apprenticeship program is not an offer of employment and there is no guarantee of employment once the course is completed. You must satisfactorily complete each phase before moving on to the next phase.
