Section 7.3 - Drivers' school instructor's certificate (form MV-524)
Current through Register Vol. 44, No. 51, December 21, 2022
(a) Such certificates (MV-524) shall be issued only to persons who meet the qualifications established by the commissioner for instructors in driver training and highway safety and for participation in research study programs. Driving records of MV-524 and MV-283 holders will be subject to periodic review by the commissioner.
(b) A drivers' school instructor's certificate endorsed for classroom instruction will be issued to applicants upon their presenting evidence of successful completion of an approved advanced program in teaching techniques and methodology, and upon completion of one year's experience as an actual in-car driver instructor; or upon presentation of proof that the holder possesses other background experience determined to be acceptable by the commissioner. This advanced program evidence will consist of a college transcript, college course completion certificate, or a similar document (an applicant who does not meet these requirements or who wishes to teach in- car only may still be eligible for a drivers' school instructor's certificate endorsed for in-car instruction).
(c) No instructor will teach the prelicensing program or research study program in a licensed driver's school unless such instructor possesses a current MV-524 certificate endorsed for classroom instruction. A person who holds an MV-283 certificate, and who applies for an MV-524 certificate, will be exempt from the requirement of completing the advanced course.
