Overview of the Entire Driver Training Process

 

The following steps are if you are going to finish the online first and then schedule the drives.

If you want to schedule early before finishing the online course, you will schedule using

the schedule process below (How to Schedule).  

1.  The first step is to go to the DMV as soon as possible to get the permit.  You must go to the DMV to do driver training in any school.   Tell the DMV Ultra Safe Advanced Driver Training ("Ultra Safe").  Go to the DMV Page for more information on what to take with you.  If you are not sure what driving school you will choose - tell the DMV your school district.  If you are home schooled - tell them your school district.  It doesn't really matter where the permit will be sent.  Driving schools mail permits to each other all the time. 

 

2.  Start the Idaho Online Driver Education (IODE) course.  This is the "classroom" portion of the course.  Please click on this link to start the online course registration process.  Start the Online 

 

3.  When you are finished with the online course please read "How to Schedule" below and then fill out the Schedule Preference Form to let us know the times you can drive.  We will create a schedule based on your preferences.  If you wish to do the Enhanced Course we will schedule the last 2 drives later after we have started the driving portion. 

​​4.  The next step is paying for the drives.  You can pay via PayPal in which we will email a PayPal invoice to you.  Or you can pay at the parent meeting via check, cash, or Venmo.  Parent meetings are optional and are mainly for the student.  Students who are exceptionally nervous (all students are nervous), then a parent meeting might help.  Parent meetings are 30-60 minutes at a local coffee shop.  Most parents choose to meet up 15 minutes before the first drive for a meet-and-greet.  You can also get to know the instructor (me) on youtube with this link...  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC-MUKkxOpGTIEomyKtms8_Q

5.  The next step is to start the driving portion. 

How to Schedule

(after you have finished the online or if you already have a permit)

​​Step 1.   Before filling out the Driving Schedule Preference Form sit down with your student and write down days and time you cannot drive for the next 5-6 weeks.  This might include birthdays, sporting events, or family functions.  There are no drives on Sundays. 

 

Step 2.  Look carefully at the Scheduling Rules; and Drive Lengths and Locations below   

Here are our Scheduling Rules...

  - When we schedule the drives, they must be finished within 5 weeks of starting and there cannot be more than 5 full days between drives.

  -Drive 7 includes a mandatory parent observation drive.  This drive is 45-60 minutes and is at the end of their regular drive.  Please allocate       extra time for this drive.

Drive Lengths, Locations, and Days of the Week

​​Drive Lengths

Drives are 2 - 2 hrs & 15 min.  If 2 friends or siblings sign up to drive together then the drives will be

3.5 hours each.  The last drive, Drive 7, includes a parent observation portion.  For solo students the last drive is 3 hrs.  For paired 

students the last drive is 5 hrs.  Paired students can do the last drive on separate days.      

 

Drive Locations

The locations below are for the Basic Teen Driving course.  It is very important to start driving at the locations listed.  Ultra Safe does not wonder around like most driving schools - each drive is specifically planned to challenge the student with new driving scenarios.  Also driving the same routes helps make the drives much safer.

If you are taking the Enhanced Course we will schedule and choose the locations for drives #8 and #9 later.
