Does this course meet the requirements to get my Oklahoma learner's permit?
Yes. If you are 15 or older, the state of Oklahoma allows you to take one of three forms of driver education (also known as driver ed) to get your learner's permit. Traditionally, students were required to take driver ed through a public school or commercial driving school. However, more students are electing to complete Parent-Taught Driver Education, which allows all classroom content to be completed online.
Why should I complete my driver education training online?
It is available 24/7. This means you get to set your own pace and take it anytime that is convenient for you.
