Drivers Ed Information




    If you are looking to take Driver's Ed through WRHS in the 2021-22 school year you have arrived at the right place.  We will run 4 sessions during the school year - Fall, Late Fall, Winter, and Spring.  Please carefully review the information on this page in order to fully understand how it works.  We are only taking 30 students per class this year--priority will be given to oldest students first.  

    The Drivers Education course offered at Wood River High School consists of a six week online class portion with an instructor completed through Idaho Digital Learning Academy (IDLA) and a driving portion provided by a local driving instructor. See more information below on both the class and driving portion.
