Idaho Panhandle Driving SchoolFAQ's

Idaho Panhandle Driving School is listed on your website as a driving school which offers behind-the-wheel training courses. How do I know if Idaho Panhandle Driving School is a licensed school in Idaho?
While we include a list of driving schools on our website for your convenience, we cannot guarantee that every single one of them is currently licensed by the Idaho DMV.  We suggest you contact Idaho Panhandle Driving School directly or the Idaho DMV to find out if Idaho Panhandle Driving School is a fully-accredited driving school.
I heard that parents can fill the role of driving instructor in Idaho, so taking a Coeur D'Alene driving school course like the one Idaho Panhandle Driving School offers is not necessary. Is that true?
You should contact the Idaho DMV or a licensed driver training school like Idaho Panhandle Driving School and ask them.  While parent-taught driving instruction is permitted in some states, many states do NOT allow it.
I can't drive a manual-shift. Will Idaho Panhandle Driving School allow me to do my driver training on an automatic-shift vehicle?
We recommend that you contact Idaho Panhandle Driving School and ask them if you can do your behind-the-wheel training using a vehicle that has an automatic shift before registering for their behind-the-wheel training course.
I live in a small rural community, where there are a lot of small, unpaved roads. Will my behind-the-wheel training with Idaho Panhandle Driving School include learning how to drive in remote areas? Or do they just offer training for urban driving?
Most local driving schools will likely want their students to be taught how to drive safely in the local area.  Therefore, chances are good that the behind-the-wheel training you receive from Idaho Panhandle Driving School will include handling dirt roads and mountain driving.
Now that I'm 14, will Idaho allow me to get a learner's permit to drive?
Not likely.  Most states require residents to be at least 15 or 15 1/2 years old before applying for a learner's permit.  We recommend that your contact the Idaho DMV office or a Idaho-approved driver training institute such as Idaho Panhandle Driving School to learn more about the minimum driving age requirement in Idaho.
Am I required to take a Coeur D'Alene Idaho classroom or online drivers education course before I can enroll in a behind-the-wheel training course through Idaho Panhandle Driving School?
This requirement varies by state but most states do mandate new teen-aged drivers to take BOTH a classroom-based driver education course (generally 30 hours in length) AND a behind-the-wheel training course.  You should ask Idaho Panhandle Driving School if they offer one or both programs.
I'm required to take a defensive driving course in Coeur D'Alene Idaho. Do you know if Idaho Panhandle Driving School offers driver training classes in Coeur D'Alene Idaho?
Yes, Idaho Panhandle Driving School does offer defensive driving courses in Coeur D'Alene Idaho.  For more information about their class schedule and how/when to sign up for one of their behind-the-wheel training courses, please contact Idaho Panhandle Driving School directly.
Do I have to take drivers education to get a Idaho driver's license?
Drivers education requirements vary depending on which state you live in, but you should be aware that most states require new, teen-aged drivers to register for both a behind-the-wheel training course in addition to a safe driving classroom or online course.  You may wish to contact the Idaho DMV to find out exactly what requirements you will need to meet in order to obtain your first driver's license.
Is there a law in Idaho that says I have to take behind-the-wheel training in order to get my driver's license?
Yes.  State law in Idaho requires that all teen-agers enroll in an approved behind-the-wheel training course before receiving a Idaho driver's license.
Can I enroll in a Idaho-licensed behind-the-wheel training course even if I don't have my Idaho learners permit yet?
Most likely, no.  Most states have laws that mandate a pre-licensed driver to have obtained a Idaho instruction permit before registering in a Idaho driver training course.  It would be best for you to contact a driving school such as Idaho Panhandle Driving School and ask for more information.
