More practice proposed for student drivers
Brainerd MN 506 James St. / PO Box 974 56401

ST. PAUL - Student drivers would have to take twice the training under a bill awaiting Senate action.

The House has passed the bill to require 60 hours behind-the-wheel practice driving, with 15 hours required for night driving. Current law requires 10 hours of night driving.

However, if a driver's sponsor takes supplemental parental driving training, the student would only need 50 hours behind the wheel. The bill requires the state Public Safety Department to establish a 90-minute parental curriculum.
