(1) The place of business of a driver training school must:
(a) Not be established nor any business of a driver training school conducted or solicited within one thousand feet of an office building owned or leased by the department of licensing in which examinations for driver's licenses are conducted. The distance of one thousand feet shall be measured along the public streets by the nearest route from the place of business to such building. If the department establishes an office in which examinations for driver's licenses are conducted within one thousand feet of a driver training school's existing location, the driver training school may continue operations in such location until there is a change in school ownership, or the license to operate is not renewed or is suspended or revoked for cause.
(b) Be regularly occupied and used exclusively for the business of giving driver instruction, except for purposes of administering examinations as may be permitted under chapter 308-110
WAC. Regularly occupied means that the public and the department can expect to make contact with the school owner or its staff or instructors at the main office during its business hours; and
(c) Meet all applicable requirements of chapter 46.82
(2) A driver training school's classroom space must:
(a) Provide sufficient seating and table or desk space for all students enrolled in each class;
(b) Be properly equipped with all other equipment necessary for student training and instruction purposes; and
(c) Be separated from the business office by using walls, partitions, or alternate scheduling when a school must use one space for both activities.
