Frequently Asked Questions about Online Drivers Ed in Colorado
You need to be at least 15 years of age to earn your permit, and you must be at least 14 years and 10 months old to take drivers ed. If you meet the age requirement, you’ll need do the following: complete an Affidavit of Liability and Guardianship (Form DR2460) and complete a Colorado DMV-approved drivers education/driver awareness permit course, such as I Drive Safely’s online Colorado drivers ed course.
Our online Colorado drivers ed program is a state-mandated 30 hours long. The information in our course is separated into 8 chapters, each covering a specific topic regarding driving in Colorado. Once you complete each chapter, you’ll be given a 10-question multiple-choice quiz. You’ll need to pass each chapter quiz with a score of 80% or greater; if you don’t get this score after two attempts you’ll need to review the chapter before moving on. At the end of the course, you’ll be given a 50-question final exam. If you pass the final with a score of 80% or greater, you’ll complete the course. You will have unlimited attempts to retake the final should you not achieve a score of 80%, but after the second attempt, you’ll be required to review the entire course (at no additional charge) before any additional attempts.
Yes. Our 30-hour course is DMV-approved and meets all the requirements needed to obtain your Colorado driver awareness permit.
Not to worry. You’re allowed unlimited retakes on the final exam for free – you can take the final until you pass it! Be advised, though, that if you need more than two retakes to pass, you’ll have to go back and review the entire course before any further retakes are attempted. There is no additional charge for this review.
