New drivers can complete course online now

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky residents who are learning to drive have a new option for completing a required safe-driving course.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says an online version of the graduated driver license course is now being offered through a driver education website, I Drive Safely, at http://teen.idrivesafely.com/Kentucky/ .

Three other options that have been available to complete the course remain. They are a four-hour course provided free at least twice a year in each county; a high school driver's education course or similar program offered by a Kentucky community college, vocational school or Job Corps; or private driver training at an approved school.

The cabinet says the online course costs $15 and takes about four hours to complete. The cost of the course is collected by the website and not the state.
