Each driver education program must provide a minimum of 30 hours of classroom instruction, six hours of in-vehicle instruction and six hours of in-vehicle observation. Classroom instruction must include the effects of alcohol and drugs on driving, motor vehicle liability insurance, and motor vehicle financial responsibility.
