House Bill 2628: Change in Driver’s Education Law

Author:
Representative Tony Goolsby

Summary:
The House Transportation Committee, chaired by Rep. Mike Krusee, will hear testimony Tuesday, April 10, on HB 2628 by Rep. Tony Goolsby. This bill would allow driving schools to enable their students to avoid the highway sign and traffic law parts of the written test at a Driver License office by stating that the applicant has already passed the test under the supervision of the driving school.

The bill discriminates against parent-taught driver education courses by not allowing those students to receive the same treatment. Parent-taught driver education students currently receive the same waiver for the road test as do students of driving schools.
