Driver Education

Registration for Fall 2021 Class has ended

Thank you for your support!

Winter 2021 Driver Education Information

More information will be posted in December.

Please keep watching this webpage for additional updates and how to register.

Please Note: Driver Education is open registration beginning on the registration date (TBD). The class roster can fill quickly. Registration is first received, first registered, and will close when the class is full.

To be eligible to enroll, students must not have failing grades for current or previous terms. Grades will be checked when registering. In addition, you will need an official state-issued birth certificate  to obtain a driver’s permit. 

For full-time students, the cost of this class is covered by the Idaho Advanced Opportunities Credit. To be eligible for the credit, the state of Idaho requires students to be enrolled in a full load of regular classes. The class is worth one elective credit at West Side High School. There is a separate charge of $26.50 payable at the DMV for the permit.
