105 ILCS 5/27-23 and 27-24.2 of the School Code requires each school district which maintains grades 9 through 12 to offer a driver education course which is defined as both classroom and behind-the-wheel. Both the classroom instruction part and the practice driving part of such driver education course shall be open to a resident or non-resident pupil attending a non-public school in the district wherein the course is offered and to each resident of the district who acquires or holds a currently valid driver's license during the term of the course and who is at least 15 but has not reached 21 years of age, without regard to whether any such person is enrolled in any other course offered in any school that the district operates.
