Courses to Earn Your Driver's Ed Certification for Illinois

The Safety and Driver's Ed Endorsement program is designed for you to add a safety and driver education endorsement to your teaching certificate.

The required courses are designed to give a comprehensive and integrated presentation of the driver education principles in classroom, laboratory, and on-road settings. Driving tasks are discussed, analyzed, and practiced, providing you with the knowledge to teach at the secondary school level. These courses are held online during the school year and on-ground during the months of June and July.*

*Olivet Nazarene University’s Safety and Driver’s Education program offers all the necessary classes that are needed to fulfill the State of Illinois’ 18 credit hour Driver’s Education Endorsement. You do not need to take all the courses through Olivet to receive the endorsement as it is issued though the State of Illinois, not Olivet. You can enroll in some or all of the required courses at Olivet. If you have taken a Driver’s Education course or one of the elective courses prior to entering Olivet’s program, you may present it to the state to see if it will fulfill the state requirement for said course. You must complete this process and submit it directly to the state.
