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.  It is required by law.  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 find 7 drives from the list below that will work for you.  Follow the scheduling steps below.  You can also use the Schedule Preference Form to let us know the times you can drive.  More information below. 

If you get lost in the steps please click on this link for a video to help you sign up....Sign-Up Video

​​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 -

​​Step 1.  Write down or note any important events for the next 3-4 weeks on your personal calendar. 

 

Step 2.  Please look at the drives listed below.  Look carefully at "Important Driving Information".  Note the list is not updated regularly.  Refresh the page frequently. 

 

Here are some scheduling rules and suggestions...

Rules:

  -Drives must be completed within 5 weeks of the first drive.

  -There cannot be more than 5 full days between drives.

  -Drives start at the specific locations listed below.  Please allocate extra time needed for transportation if your student is being picked up        from a location.  More information below.

  -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. 

Suggestions:

  -Sit down with your student and write down days and time you cannot drive.  This might include birthdays, sporting events, or

   family functions.  There are no drives on Sundays. 

  -Scheduling drives at least every other day is best.  Consecutive drives are okay - but sometimes it can be tougher to reschedule if there

   is a missed drive.

  -Drive #6 is the freeway.  It is wise to schedule this drive after 5pm.

 

Step 3.  Schedule using text messaging or fill out the Driving Schedule Preference Form below.  Texting is the best way because you are creating your own driving schedule.  Using the Driving Schedule Preference Form is easy but takes longer to schedule because we will try to find a good driving schedule for you. 

     

 

Texting Tip:  For texting simply text us the 7 days and times you want and we will see if they are available.  If you can only find 6 drives - please text us the 6 drives and we will try to find an opening for the 7th drive.  An example text might look like..."7 330, 11 630, 15 730, etc.".  We will double-check to make sure they are available and let you know.  After the drives are confirmed, please go back to step #5 above.208-880-3311

Drive Lengths and Locations 

​​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.
