We live in a very remote area far from the local high school that offers driver’s education courses. Is it possible to “home-school” our teen in driver’s education so he can obtain his driver’s license at age 15?
No. If a teen wants to obtain a restricted driver’s license prior to their 16th birthday, they MUST complete a driver’s education course at a public or private high school that has is approved by the Montana Office of Public Instruction. Teens not able to complete such a course need to wait until they are 16 when they can take the written exam, obtain a Traffic Education Learner License (TELL permit) and drive with their parents (or a licensed adult driver authorized by the parents) for the required 50 hours and six months.
