Purpose of the Proposal and Its Anticipated Effects, Including Any Changes in Existing Rules: Adds a new section to chapter 308-104 WAC to establish requirements for satisfactory evidence of enrollment in a traffic safety education program necessary for purposes of obtaining a driver's instruction permit.
Reasons Supporting Proposal: RCW 46.20.055 (1)(b)(ii) permits an applicant who is at least fifteen years of age, but less than fifteen and one-half years of age, to receive an instruction permit if the applicant is enrolled in a traffic safety education program. Subsection (2) of that section permits the department to waive the written examination for an applicant who is enrolled in a traffic safety education course or in a course of instruction offered by a driver training school. This proposed rule sets standards for evidence of enrollment that is acceptable to the department.
