Driver Education

Teen Drivers and Parents

The BMV provides the following resources for teen drivers and their parents to help prepare for how to obtain an Indiana driver’s license.

A driver training program consists of 30 hours of classroom training and six hours of behind-the-wheel training with a BMV-licensed driver training school.

Online training is available as an alternative to classroom training, but students will still be responsible for the six behind-the-wheel hours. You may complete online training before enrolling at a licensed driver training school for behind-the-wheel training, but you should first confirm that your preferred driver training school will accept the online training program you have selected. See the following list of licensed driver training schools for information on course offerings.
