Once you complete the online course, you will need a certificate of drivers education (CDE) from a BMV-licensed commercial driving school, needed to apply for a drivers education learners permit at the BMV. You will receive your CDE when you sign up for behind-the-wheel training.
Once you receive your CDE, you can apply for your permit at a BMV License Branch near you.
To begin in-car driving lessons, you will need to schedule six hours of lessons with a licensed driving instructor in Indiana.
You will need to practice driving with a licensed driving instructor or under the supervision of a parent or guardian for at least 30 days before you can apply for your drivers license.
Note that your learners permit comes with the following restrictions:
If you have a learners permit and you are enrolled in an approved drivers education program you may practice driving only after you begin an approved drivers education program. You may drive only when you are accompanied by a certified driving instructor in the front seat of a vehicle equipped with dual brake controls, or when a parent, step-parent or guardian who is at least 21 years of age and has their valid drivers license with them is seated in your vehicle's passenger seat.
While you are completing your in-car driving lessons, you can continue to take and complete the DriversEd.com online course.
With drivers education, once you turn at least 16 years and 90 days old and held a valid Indiana learners permit for 180 days, you can apply for your drivers license.
To be eligible for the Indiana drivers license, you must:
Once you meet all the requirements, you will be issued a license.
If you are younger than 18, the license will be a probationary license, which is valid for 4 years from the date of issue and may not be renewed. For 90 days after, you may not drive with other passengers in the car unless there is someone at least 25 years old with a valid drivers license seated next to you.
Also with a probationary license, you may drive only when you and all your passengers have a safety belt properly fastened at all times when the car is in motion.
Once you turn 18, you can receive a full drivers license.

How long it takes is mostly up to you. According to Indiana law, all drivers education classes must be at least 30 hours long, and when taking the online course, students can only complete 3 hours of the course each day. That means the course will take at least 10 days to complete.
In addition, you will have 24 months from the date of enrollment to complete the course. If you do not complete the course within 24 months, your enrollment will be cancelled and you will have to enroll again and start the course over from the beginning.
After payment, your free practice permit tests will become accessible from your online DriversEd.com account.
We calculate your final class grade using your online quiz grades in addition to your final online test grade. And no worries—you'll have the option to take practice final exams and review the course material as much as you want before the real graded final exam. In order to pass the course, you need at least a final course grade of 80%.
The online Indiana drivers education course is accessible using most computers and mobile devices with an internet connection. For more information, please review our full system requirements.
