How much is drivers education?

Drivers education tuition varies by school. Generally, you can expect to pay anywhere from $350 to $495 for a traditional drivers ed course that combines classroom instruction with behind the wheel training. Depending on the course you may be charged more if you're over 18. Or less if you're only interested in classroom instruction or only the driving portion of the program. You'll have to contact the school or school district (if offered through your local high school) directly for exact costs. Most state DMV Web sites provide a list of approved schools with contact information.

If you're looking to save money, give some thought to driver ed online. These courses are inexpensive (usually in the $40 to $50 price range) and allow you to complete the course from the convenience of home when your schedule permits. The only catch is that as of now this online option is only offered in the following 15 states:

  • Alaska
  • Arizona
  • California
  • Colorado
  • Florida
  • Georgia
  • Indiana
  • Minnesota
  • Nebraska
  • Nevada 
  • Oklahoma
  • Pennsylvania
  • Texas 
  • Utah
  • Virginia

Before enrolling in any drivers ed course, make sure it meets state approval. Only Certificates of Completion from approved schools will be recognized. Otherwise your quest for a drivers license will be delayed. It is always best to confirm this through your DMV.
