16 and under Students

  • Go to the DMV as soon as possible.  You must go to the DMV to get the Supervised Instruction Permit (learners permit) in order to take driver education anywhere. 

  • Make sure you take all the required documents or they will turn you away.  The documents are listed below.

  • When asked which driving school you will choose - tell them Ultra Safe Advanced Driver Training.  They need to know where to send the permit. 

  • If you are not sure which driving school - just tell them the local school district (even if you don't go to public school).  It doesn't matter where the permit is sent - driving school mail permits to each other all the time.

  • It's best to make an appointment, but they can let you in if it isn't busy.  Monday morning is best.

  • Drivers Manuals are by the front doors.  Please grab a Drivers Manual for personal study and one manual for each vehicle in your household.

Required Documents for the DMV...

 

1. Proof of Age and Identity:  If you do not have a state-issued ID card then you must bring...

  The original birth certificate and a school photo ID card or yearbook.

2. Social Security Card or Number for Verification.  It's okay if you don't have the card, but you do need the number.  The DMV will verify it.

3. Proof of Idaho Residency.  Pay stub, utility bills, school enrollment records are all acceptable.  (I would bring at least 2 items just in case.)

4. Acceptable Lawful Presence Documents (if from another country)

5. Foreign Driver’s License (if from another country))

6. Visual/Medical Certification (if applicable)

7. Liability Signer (if under 18).  Birth parent or legal guardian must sign paperwork.

8. Verification of School Compliance "VOC" (if under 18) Available at your school.  Your student can get this from the school secretary.  Home schooled students won't have a VOC - tell the DMV your homeschooled.

 

17 and over Students

  • You are not required to take driving education if you are 17 and enrolled in public or private school.  Ultra Safe requires 17 year olds to take the 7-drive teen course (no online required).  You do not need to be enrolled in school if you are 18. 

  • If you are at least 17 you can study the Drivers Manual and take the written test in order to get your Instruction Permit.  The Instruction Permit allows you to practice driving in any vehicle. 

  • If you do not want to study the Drivers Manual and take the written test - you can sign up the same way as the 16 and under students described above.
