Drivers Ed in Alaska
Completion of a Alaska Drivers Ed course is suggested and often required prior to obtaining your learner's permit, and ultimately receiving your Driver's License. Although not approved for the state of Alaska, I Drive Safely is a good course to prepare yourself for your state's licensing exam.
Driver education courses in Alaska are offered to beginner drivers, ages 14 and older, who are planning to apply for their learner's permits and driver's licenses. Driver's training refresher courses for experienced drivers with multiple or repeat traffic offenses are also available, as is traffic school.
Taking driver's education or a driver's training class, regardless of your age or driver's license status, is a great way to gain familiarity with the rules of the road, learn how to operate a car and uphold the traffic laws. Most driver education classes will teach lessons in the classroom and offer behind-the-wheel experience, beyond what you can learn in the driver's handbook.
