How old do I have to be to take for driver's ed?
You have to be 14½ on the first day of class. You can register at any time to reserve your seat.
Is 14½ too
young for drivers ed?
For some, 17 is
too young. However, the longer you drive with them before they leave home

the real world.

So students drive for free until they get their license.
