  3. 3. THE BEGINNING OF DRIVER’S EDUCATION Driving Education schools first started as driver’s ed. The class was first offered as a non – credit elective that took place after school hours. It became a required course by 1940. (http://www.scasd.org/Page/826 http://www.cjdriversed.com/uploads/6/9/1/5/6915419/507 4011_orig.jpg
