Driver’s education would be going online for some young Illinoisans, under a bill which has passed the House. To ensure young drivers understand the rules of the road, State Rep. John D’Amico (D-Chicago) sponsored a bill that would create an online drivers education course for 18 to 21 year olds who did not take the Graduated Driver’s License program, that is easily accessible.

“We don’t plan on having it right at the (Secretary of State drivers facilities). Obviously you can do it at the library. You can do it on your home computer,” D’Amico said. Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White made an appearance in the Illinois House to support the bill as it was debated.
“This piece of legislation is designed to take care of some of the issues that these young people have missed because they didn’t take part in our Graduated Driver’s License program,” White said. HB 772 was sent to the Senate with an unanimous vote.
