Driver Education

Driver education programs are important for teaching driving skills, rules and tips to new drivers. However, continued education is also needed to provide all drivers with updated information on rules and law changes, or risky driving behaviors. In rural areas driver education programs can be customized to address rural driving conditions or road characteristics, such as railroad crossings, mountainous terrain, or sharing the road with large trucks and agricultural equipment.

This section provides resources related to driver’s education.
