We have made every attempt to answer the most commonly asked questions. Please call or email us if your question is not here.
How It Works
How does online driver's education work?
It's simple. After you create an account (which takes less than a minute), you can start the Safe2Drive 15/5 or 30-HR driver's ed course. You can pay right away or wait until the final exam.
The course is available online 24/7. That means you can log in and out whenever you want and from any computer that has Internet access. When you log back in, you can return to the exact page where you left off. Doesn't that sound better than spending your weekends in a classroom?
At the end of the course, there will be a final exam. Don't worry though. You can take it as many times as you need in order to pass. Once you pass the test, you will be able to print your Certificate of Completion right away. If you do not have access to a printer and need a hard copy of your Receipt of Completion, please call us and we would be more than happy to mail you a copy.
Who must take driver's education?
Nevada beginning drivers under the age of 18 must complete a driver education course if they want to obtain a driver license. You can enroll in a driver education course at age 15.
Safe2Drive's online course is DMV-licensed and fulfills the 15/5 and 30-HR Nevada driver's education requirement for new drivers under 18 years old. But no matter how old you are, if you want to learn about driving in Nevada and plan to obtain a Nevada drivers license, you can take this course.
What is the 30-HR course?
The 30-HR course is a 30-hour online course that satisfies the Nevada Driver Education requirement. No professional behind-the-wheel training is required with this course.
In addition to completing this 30-hour online course, you will also need to complete 50 hours of behind-the-wheel driving with a licensed driver who is 21 or older and has been licensed for at least one year, seated next to you at all times. 10 hours of the experience must be completed in darkness. You must keep a written log of the dates and times of this behind-the-wheel driving and submit it when you take your driving skills test.
What is the 15/5 course?
The 15/5 course offers an alternative to a 30-hour online course. Basically, you will do 15 hours of online driver's education AND 5 hours of driver's training (behind-the-wheel) with a Nevada certified professional driving school.
In addition to completing the 15-hour online course and 5 hours of training with a professional driving school, you must also complete 45 hours of behind-the-wheel driving with a licensed driver who is 21 or older and has been licensed for at least one year, seated next to you at all times. 10 hours of the experience must be completed in darkness.
