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 Mr. Blackham to take the Learner Permit Test or go to the DLD to take the test.

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 online 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.

Currently the class is offered as an online environment. 

For cost of Drivers Ed see the fee schedule

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's Ed Application.

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

Please email Brian Blackham ( 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 contact Mr. Blackham or go to one of the DLD offices to renew the permit. The website is
