We have exciting news: our online Illinois Adult Driver Education course has been approved by the Illinois Secretary of State! That means those who are ages 18, 19, or 20 and have never previously been licensed or completed an approved driver education course may now register and complete our 6-hour online Illinois Adult Driver Education course to meet licensing requirements. Other adults age 18 and older can take our online Illinois Adult Driver Education course to prepare for the knowledge exam, or to brush up on their knowledge of Illinois driving laws.
We've worked hard to make the best course possible for our students. We want you to enjoy the time you spend on our course! In this post, we'll explain who should complete an Illinois Adult Driver Education course. We'll also review some of the features of our course.
This course is for Illinois driver's license applicants ages 18, 19, or 20 who have never previously been licensed or completed an approved driver education course. If this applies to you, you must meet the following requirements to earn your driver's license:
- Complete a 6-hour Adult Driver Education course approved by the Illinois Secretary of State (SOS) and provide a Certificate of Completion (Safe2Drive's course satisfies this requirement)
- Complete an application for a driver's license
- Gather the required identification documents
- Pass a vision screening
- Pass a knowledge exam
- Pass a driving skills test
- Pay the required licensing fee
If you're over age 18 and want to prepare for the knowledge exam, or just want to brush up on your knowledge of Illinois traffic laws, you can also take our course!
How does the course work?
If you've never completed an online course, don't worry! Our course is easy to navigate. Plus, we have a dedicated customer service team available to help you if you get stuck!
The Illinois SOS requires adult driver education courses to be 6 hours long. You can finish our course in one sitting, or in small bursts. It's really up to you! The SOS requires that you finish the course within 30 days of starting, so make sure to keep an eye on that.
The course is divided up into 6 short lessons, each focusing on different driving topics. After each lesson, you'll complete a short quiz. Most people pass the lesson quizzes on their first try, but no worriesâ€”you can retake the lesson quizzes as many times as you need in order to pass at no additional cost.
When you've finished the course content and lesson quizzes, you will take an online multiple-choice final exam. The final exam consists of 20 questions, and you will need to score at least 75% in order to pass. Even though most people pass the final exam on their first try, the SOS permits two tries to pass the final exam. After that, you must start the course over from the beginning. Safe2Drive does not charge any additional fees to retake the final exam or start the course over.
Our course and final exam are completed online. You can take the course on any device that connects to the internet, whether you're at home on the couch or at the park on a sunny day!
Our course is interactive!
We want you to participate! That's why we've included interactive features throughout our course. You will read interesting short stories, watch helpful videos, view interactive animations, and even play games! Each lesson includes a variety of multimedia elements. We also include a short summary at the end of each lesson to help you remember everything you've learned.
Another cool feature of our course is our read-aloud option. At no additional cost, you can listen to an audio version of our course as you follow along in each lesson. The audio is clear and engagingâ€”not a boring robot voice. You'll have the option to turn the audio feature on or off throughout the course whenever you like.
Our online Illinois Adult Driver Education course is a great option for those ages 18, 19, or 20 who need to complete the course for a licensing requirement, as well as those age 18 and older who want to complete the course voluntarily.
