HB 2178 - Requires high schools to offer driver's education courses

MoBikeFed comment: Missouri moved away from requiring driver's ed for new drivers some years ago, replacing the driver's ed requirement with a graduated driver license system.

Research has shown the graduated driver license system to be more effective than driver's ed alone in promoting safe driving among young drivers. But this leaves a real gap in our training system for young drivers, as many never go through a course of intensive learning of the rules of the road or guided driving practice.
