Rule making related to driver education

The Department of Transportation hereby amends Chapter 634, "Driver Education," Iowa Administrative Code.

Legal Authority for Rule Making

This rule making is adopted under the authority provided in Iowa Code sections 307.12 and 321.178.

State or Federal Law Implemented

This rule making implements, in whole or in part, Iowa Code sections 307.12; 321.178 as amended by 2019 Iowa Acts, Senate File 319; and 321.178A.

Purpose and Summary

This rule making amends Chapter 634 to incorporate amendments that align with existing legal authority and Department practice, eliminate outdated or irrelevant requirements or options, and promote consistency by organizing the requirements for behind-the-wheel driver education instructors according to whether the instructor is a licensed teacher, a licensed teacher with an expired teaching license, a peace officer or a retired peace officer, or is not a licensed teacher.

The most significant amendments modernize the certification process for a behind-the-wheel driver education instructor under the authority of the Department in Iowa Code section 321.178. A person providing parent-taught driver education under the authority in Iowa Code section 321.178A is not considered a behind-the-wheel driver education instructor and is therefore not subject to the same certification requirements that make up the majority of this rule making. A behind-the-wheel driver education instructor is certified by the Department and authorized by the Iowa Board of Educational Examiners to provide the "street or highway driving" portion of a driver education program and can be a licensed teacher or a person who is not a licensed teacher. This is different than a classroom driver education instructor, who can only be a licensed teacher and is regulated exclusively by the Iowa Board of Educational Examiners.

Certified behind-the-wheel driver education instructor requirements. There are approximately 700 behind-the-wheel driver education instructors in Iowa certified by the Department and authorized by the Iowa Board of Educational Examiners. The current rules lack specificity regarding the difference in the requirements a person must meet to provide behind-the-wheel instruction depending on if the person is a licensed teacher, a peace officer or retired peace officer, or is not a licensed teacher. Therefore, the goals of this rule making are to spell out the differences where necessary and to apply the same requirements consistently amongst behind-the-wheel instructors while comprehensively modernizing the behind-the-wheel certification process. Improvements include offering instructor refresher course options that are more tailored to the specific audience's existing skill set and professional experience, and that provide value and are more convenient, including electronic training options. The amendments also reduce burdens by making the instructor refresher course biennial (rather than annual) and offering a new way for an instructor with an expired behind-the-wheel certification to regain certified status without having to retake the entire instructor preparation course.

The new requirement to complete the instructor refresher course biennially begins January 1, 2021, and will apply to all certified behind-the-wheel instructors. The Department currently offers a robust and well-received annual behind-the-wheel instructor refresher course in person and is actively working on developing additional course opportunities, including via webinar or an online training module. Currently, a licensed teacher is not required to participate in any behind-the-wheel refresher course if the teacher has maintained a valid teacher's license, whereas a behind-the-wheel instructor who is not a licensed teacher has always been required to attend the refresher course annually. The instructor refresher course provides an excellent opportunity to review trends and improvements in the area of driver education that are specific to behind-the-wheel instruction, as well as identify updates to the laws governing traffic safety and driver education, and therefore is considered a necessary component of the behind-the-wheel certification process to yield consistency in driver education. However, in recognizing that certain categories of behind-the-wheel instructors are required to maintain a specific skill set as part of their profession, for example, a licensed teacher or a peace officer, the Department plans to develop refresher course content that is specifically tailored, rather than subjecting a licensed teacher or peace officer to course content that does not take into account their existing skill sets and specific needs when it comes to behind-the-wheel driver education instruction.

These amendments incorporate the changes made in 2019 Iowa Acts, Senate File 319, which amends Iowa Code section 321.178 to exempt peace officers and retired peace officers from the requirement to be authorized by the Iowa Board of Educational Examiners to provide behind-the-wheel driver education instruction. A peace officer or retired peace officer must still meet other requirements under the rules to be certified by the Department to provide behind-the-wheel driver education, except a peace officer or retired peace officer will not be required to complete the initial behind-the-wheel instructor classroom and behind-the-wheel driving preparation course under subparagraph 634.6(6)"a"(3).

These amendments also align the Department's reasons for disqualification of a behind-the-wheel instructor with the reasons for which the Iowa Board of Educational Examiners may deny an application for licensure, certification or authorization under rule 282—11.35(272). By aligning the Department's disqualification reasons with the Board's requirements, there will be less chance for inconsistency and unequal treatment for persons providing behind-the-wheel driver education instruction.

Parent-taught driver education. A parent providing parent-taught driver education under Iowa Code section 321.178A is not subject to the behind-the-wheel certification requirements as an instructor who teaches at a school-offered or commercial driver education program, so the majority of this rule making does not apply to parent-taught driver education. However, the Department did identify an improvement to the rules governing parent-taught driver education that will provide a teaching parent and the student greater flexibility. These amendments remove the requirement for a student and parent to restart the course if the student and parent start an approved course before they receive Departmental approval to begin the course. Making this change will help avoid situations where a student is required to retake an approved course that the student had already started or completed simply because the student began too soon, and instead allows the focus to remain on whether the course is approved and appropriate and the remaining requirements are properly met.

Public Comment and Changes to Rule Making

Notice of Intended Action for this rule making was published in the Iowa Administrative Bulletin on November 20, 2019, as ARC 4771C. No public comments were received. In paragraph 634.6(5)"b," the word "otherwise" was removed. No other changes from the Notice have been made.

Adoption of Rule Making

This rule making was adopted by the Department on January 16, 2020.

Fiscal Impact

These amendments alter the application and certification process for behind-the-wheel driver education instructors but do not impose any fees and, therefore, do not have a fiscal impact.

Jobs Impact

After analysis and review of this rule making, no impact on jobs has been found.

Waivers

Any person who believes that the person's circumstances meet the statutory criteria for a waiver may petition the Department for a waiver under 761—Chapter 11.
