House Bill 2439: Helps Remedy Problematic Driver Education Provision for Virginia Parents
Sponsors:
Delegate Mark Sickles
Summary:

Currently, Virginia law requires students in Planning District 8 to take an additional training component alongside their parents as part of their driver education. This component is supposed to be offered as part of classroom instruction, so parents who use an approved correspondence driver education course to provide classroom instruction should be able to complete the component at home; however, it has so far remained unavailable anywhere but the local public school system. This bill would require school boards in Planning District 8 to make this component available to homeschooled students and their parents.
