What to expect from Segment 1 Driver Education
Driving Instruction Requirements
Classroom and driving instruction will be integrated and related, which means that the classroom and driving instruction must occur within relatively the same time period.
Parent Driving Permit
A driver education provider may offer a Parent Driving Permit to a student (and parent) to allow him or her to acquire extra practice driving with a parent while attending a Segment 1 course. See an example of a Parent Driving Permit and Information
Earning a Segment 1 Certificate of Completion
For students to be issued a Segment 1 certificate of completion from their driver education school they must successfully complete both the classroom AND driving instruction portions of the course, AND the written test. A student could pass the classroom portion, but fail driver education based on his or her driving skills and not receive a Segment 1 certificate of completion.
The driver education Segment 1 certificate of completion is not a permit to drive and cannot be treated as a driver's license. After completing Segment 1, the student and parent must go to a Secretary of State branch office to apply for a Level 1 driver's license.
