South Dakota Safety Council: Alive at 25
In May of 2008, the South Dakota Department of Public Safety helped launch Alive at 25. It's a classroom-based defensive driving course designed for people under the age of 25. This course has a proven track record for diminishing crash statistics among those who take the class. However, this course does not qualify for the purpose of reducing the number of days a minor must hold an instruction permit. The course also does not qualify as a waiver for the knowledge or drive tests.
The links below are a few examples of the online driver education courses available. The State of South Dakota does not review, approve, or certify any online courses and, although these courses can be a great tool, they do not qualify for the purpose of reducing the number of days a minor must hold an instruction permit (the permit still needs to be held 180 days versus 90 days for a state-approved driver education course). The online courses also do not qualify as a waiver for the knowledge or drive tests.
