The purpose of these regulations is to develop knowledge and teaching skills of Traffic Safety Education to beginning drivers as well as the mature driver. Under Section 56-23-10, "A person may not engage in the business of training or educating persons to drive or operate motor vehicles…for which a fee or charge is made…unless the person has obtained and holds a valid driver training school license issued by the Department."
