Adults older than 19 soon may no longer need to take driver education courses to obtain a driver license in Utah.
The House voted 67-1 on Friday to approve some Senate amendments and give final passage to HB266, and sent it to Gov. Gary Herbert for his signature.
Rep. Brad Daw, R-Orem, said 40 states do not require driver education for adults older than age 19. His amended bill would also require such people to hold a learning permit for three months and certify that they drove at least 40 hours during that time. He said the best way to learn to drive is to drive.
