Documents to apply for Home Study Driver Education:
The Traffic Safety Bureau recognizes that there are some situations that make it almost impossible for students to attend driver education at their high school or at a private driver education school. TSB also recognizes that many home school parents would prefer to integrate driver education as part of their home school curriculum. In these situations, correspondence driver education may be an option.
The New Mexico Administrative Code defines a correspondence course as “a driver education course approved by the Bureau in which a student independently studies written materials and submits written assignments for review by a driver education instructor.” Correspondence driver education courses will not enroll a student without prior approval from TSB.
Please note that TSB does not recognize on-line driver education programs at this time.Click below for the application for permission to enroll in driver education correspondence school.
