​​​​​​​​Additional Driving and Online Course Information

Driving Course Info ​​​(the online classroom course is discussed below). 

Students do 7 drives.  They start and end at specific locations.  We do not drive on Sundays.  Drives start at specific locations listed below,

but occasionally students can drive themselves home.  

  Why are the drives so long?  Each drive contains in-car classroom lessons.  It is best to teach many

advanced concepts and techniques while in the vehicle.  For example Drive #5 contains 20-25 minutes of freeway information

before entering the freeway.  Students usually do 6.5 - 7 hours of actual driving in our course.  ALL other driving schools only do the required 6 hours. 

Online Course Info

When you have scheduled and paid for the drives we will refer you to IODE which will send you an invite to enroll.  The IODE online course is included

in the teen driving course you choose. 

  Why Take the Online Course

An online classroom course, either Idaho Online Driver Education (IODE) or, is required if you are under 17.  17 and over students can

also take an online course to become a safer driver and help pass the DMV written test - but it is not required.  Both online courses take

approximately 25 hours to complete and both can be done at the student's convenience.  Whichever course is chosen, students can only receive their

permit if the driving portion and online portion are completed.  Although it is encouraged, the driving portion and online portion do not have to be completed

at the same time - each can be completed independently.    


Common Questions We Receive                                

What is the online course and when can we start it?

  UltraSafe only provides the driving portion of the course.  It is also required that you take a 30 hour class course.  Permits are earned when both the online and driving portions are completed.  You will use Idaho Online Driver Education (IODE).   

  To use IODE, you must pay for the course and then we will refer you to Instructor Brian Johns of IODE and he will enroll your student.  IODE only enrolls students who have decided on a driving school - it is not required to go to the DMV (but you have to in order to drive).  You can finish the online course anytime - the driving portion is not connected with the online portion.  However, students drive much better if they have finished or almost finished an online course closer to their driving times.

When do we go to the DMV? 

As soon as possible.  If you are not sure which driving school you will choose, please tell the DMV the school district your student is enrolled in.  Permits can be forwarded so don't worry about where it was sent - just remember where it was sent.  Required Documents for the DMV

​​I want to sign up my student for driving in a month or do I do this and what can I start doing now?

  You can message or text us the time frame in which you'd like to drive up to 2 months prior.  We will take your requests into account when creating upcoming monthly schedules.    

  You can always go to the DMV as soon as possible.  Please tell the DMV Ultra Safe driving if you feel confident you will choose Ultra Safe.  If your not sure, just tell them your student's school district.  After going to the DMV you can start immediately.  To do IODE (the better choice), you must first signup with Ultra Safe.
