1. Adult Driver Education

Take this Adult Driver Education course if you're age 18 to 20 and have never previously been licensed or taken a driver education course. Other adults age 18 and older can also take this course to prepare for the knowledge exam or to brush up on their knowledge of Illinois driving laws. This course is not yet approved by the Illinois Secretary of State (SOS). Our application for approval is pending.

Registration is fast and easy -- only two minutes! Create a username and password. Use your username and password to access the course as often as you want. We provide an unlimited number of logins.

2. Pay

Our course is competitively priced and we have no hidden fees. We notify the Illinois SOS of your completion for free. We offer several convenient payment options: credit card online, credit card by phone, or check by mail.

3. Complete the Course

Our course consists of short lessons that include lecture material and videos. The course is six hours long as required by the Illinois SOS. You can complete it all at once or over a period of time. You must complete the course within 30 days of starting the course. We automatically take you to your last spot each time you log in.

4. Pass the Exam

You must pass the final exam at the end of the course. The online exam takes about 15 minutes to complete, and most people pass on their first try. It consists of 20 multiple-choice questions, and you must score at least 75% (15 correct answers). No need to worry! We offer an unlimited number of retries free of charge. Per the Illinois SOS, if you fail the final exam twice in a row, you must start the course over again from the beginning.

5. Get Your Completion Certificate

We process your completion to the Illinois SOS within two business days. You will then receive an email from the SOS at the email address you provided when you registered with Safe2Drive. The email will contain a link where you can download your Certificate of Completion. You must print the certificate and take it to the nearest Illinois SOS facility with your other required identification documents and complete the remaining requirements to receive a driver’s license.
