Is secondary teacher licensure required?

For licensed secondary teachers, completion of the courses qualifies individuals to teach both the classroom and behind-the-wheel components of driver education. If preparation for the initial teaching license was at the elementary level, completion of student teaching in driver education at the secondary level is also required. However, for licensed elementary teachers who have at least two years of teaching experience, the secondary student teaching requirement may be met by completing the Experience in Safety Education course and providing a letter that documents the number of years of classroom experience.
