I live in Michigan and I got driver'* training through my high school. I only had to pay the $15 for the book and that was it.
My school also had a really nice Driver'* ED car. It was a brand new 2000 Impala LS. When I drove it, it had 32 miles on it!!

Damn, dbtk2 you got it easy. I have to pay $500 for some place outside of school to teach me to drive. I'm still investigating if I can just have someone teach me [like my mom] and just take the tests. I'm a damn good driver [when I want to be], and passing that thing would be so damn easy.

The driver'* ed car that I have seen, is a '91ish Transport, with wood for the front and rear bumpers, and has a nasty smash on the front hood. A friend of mine could have sworn it had 300,000 miles.. she'* kinda dumb though, and it could have only been 30,000 miles.

Not including the test it cost me $410 for some private drivers ed company to "teach me" to drive...how is that much better then what you paid?

Not in idaho lol.


$50 here buys you a 4 week drving class in classroom where you look at a book with traffic rules, you get around 4 or 5 hours of driving time as well.


Then when you are done you go in and take a written test and go on a 10 minute drive with a cop and there you go!

And they wonder why all the 15 year old drivers here are always crashing?

It'* better, in that $410 is lower than $500.
