Navigating Drivers Education

Step 1: Navigating Drivers Education

Scenario #A: My child is at least 15 and does not have a Learner Permit yet.

Contact an ALA Driving Instructor to take the Learner Permit Test. More information about this important step can be found in Step 2- Learner Permit.

Scenario #B: My child has a learner permit but has not taken the state required Driver Education class.

There are a two main options a student can do:

1. They can take the class from a private driving school (not discussed here)

2. They can take Driver Education through ALA.

Taking Driver Education through ALA:

If your child wants to take Drivers Ed please make an appointment with ALA school counselor, Mrs. June Jensen.

Students have the choice of taking the class during the school day as part of their course schedule or taking the class in an online environment (Canvas). 

The cost for Driver Ed is $150 for classroom supplies and road driving hours.

The cost for Drivers Ed online is $250 for online class and road driving hours.

The cost of Drivers Ed during the summer is $175 for classroom supplies, road driving hours, and classroom hours.

Scenario #C: My child has their permit and completed the class but still needs to drive (finish driving) with an instructor.

The student needs to speak with an instructor and schedule drive time.  If you need to begin or pick up driving please fill out the Driver Ed Application.

Scenario #D: I believe my child has completed all requirements but I am not sure.

Please email Coach Purvis ( the student's name, birthday, and Utah Permit #.  We will look up their DLD record and verify completed steps.

Scenario #E: My child is somewhere in the process but their permit has expired.

You must go to one of the DLD offices to renew the permit. Their website is
