As your child approaches the magical age of being able to drive, we know you will both be wondering how best to get a driver's license.
While it may be technically possible under the Education Code for homeschoolers who operate private schools to teach their children themselves, we know that the DMV is not supportive of this. We strongly recommend that you use one of the commercial options that the DMV recognizes. For instance, there are a number of commercial driving schools certified by the DMV that provide both the textbook and "behind-the-wheel" portions of the instruction required. You can also see if classes are offered through a local community college, public or private high school, or use a distance learning driver's education class. Please refer to the DMV website for more information or look in your local yellow pages.
