The focus is on the development of a highly competent Driver Education teacher in both the classroom and behind-the-wheel teaching settings. Of course beginning teachers should have a good driving record and be willing to engage young adults in the driving task in a variety of traffic conditions. Driver Education is a required subject area in Illinois schools. Teachers will receive instruction from experienced Driver Education faculty in both teaching settings. EIU graduates approximately 45 Driver Educations teachers a year; which we believe to be the largest and most comprehensive teacher preparation program in the state.
