My teen will be 15 soon but the drivers ed course at our local high school conflicts with their sports schedule. Are there any private state-approved driver’s education courses available in Montana that would allow my teen to get a restricted license at age 15?
No. The only way a 15-year-old can obtain a driver’s license in Montana is to successfully complete a state-approved program through a public or private school, which includes 6 or more hours of behind-the-wheel training and a strong emphasis on safety and parental involvement. Otherwise, they need to wait until they are 16 when they can go to a driver exam station, take the required tests, and then drive for 6 months with a learner’s license and parent supervision. The Graduated Driver License law applies to all new drivers until the age of 18.
