We may be limiting our face to face classes to allow for social distancing. Students that don’t get selected for the face to face classes will have the chance to take online IDLA classes and will still be able to drive with instructors at their home high school. If we are not allowed to offer face to face classroom instruction we will be creating custom classes through IDLA for the classroom instruction portion of Driver Education and students will sign up to drive at either Canyon Ridge or Twin Falls High School. Students will be required to pay the $75 fee to IDLA for the classroom instruction and $180 to their high school for the driving portion of the class.
Students will need to pick up an authorization form and a Verification of Compliance form from their school in order to purchase a Driver Training Permit. Students must have a certified copy of birth certificate with the stamped seal on it to purchase the permit. Be sure you have this birth certificate before you sign up. NO photocopies of the birth certificate are allowed. Students must be at least 14 ½ years of age and have a 2.0 G.P.A. to enroll in class. Students will be charged a missed drive fee of $25 for missing a scheduled drive.
Class starting dates are subject to change based on School Calendar events and instructor availability. Signup up dates are subject to change as affected by changes in the calendar.
Each high school has a Driver Education class. Students may register in the front office during the registration dates posted above. Students are selected chronologically by birthdates. We decide how many students are needed to fill the session and then invite students and parents to a meeting to explain how to obtain a permit and pay the fee. The cost is $180 for the class and a fee of $21.50 to purchase the permit. Students taking IDLA classroom courses are still required to pay $180 for the driving requirements through the Twin Falls School District. Students must have a certified copy of birth certificate with the stamped seal on it to purchase the permit. Be sure you have this birth certificate before you sign up. NO photocopies of the birth certificate are allowed. Students must be at least 14 ½ years of age and have a 2.0 G.P.A. to enroll in class. . Students that are not selected for a session must sign up again for the next session to be considered. We do not carry student’s names over to the next session.

Driving times are scheduled by the instructor, usually after school and on the weekends.
Students are allowed only 2 absences, 3 tardies equal on absence. Students are graded on the classroom, driving and attitude. Students must pass all 3 areas to pass the course. Students will be charged a missed drive fee of $25 for missing a scheduled drive.
