Homeschool Driver’s Education Requirements

Driver’s Education Requirements for Homeschoolers

Are you in the process of homeschooling the high school years? As your student enters the homeschool high school years they will soon begin thinking about the day they are behind the wheel of a car. (Even if you’re not ready to think about it!) In some states, students as young as 14 are allowed to obtain a learner’s permit.

Are you ready for this? There are quite a few options for learning to drive when you are homeschooling the high school years. First off, you will need to contact your state’s department of motor vehicles to find out exactly how many class hours and how many driving hours are required, and what is acceptable for the learning portion. Most states have a two-part testing process. The first part is factual knowledge and students simply study and test out. The second part of the high school driver’s education is an actual driving test. This is usually administered by the local DMV.
