Acceptance and Wait Lists Posted: Friday, Feb. 14, on the glass doors outside the BHS Main Office and outside the Adult Ed Office in the Willson Building, Room 227. Classes are filled with the oldest students first. It is not first come first served. The wait list can be lengthy so only the oldest 30 people on the wait list are posted. If your student does not make it into the session, you must reapply for subsequent sessions. Placement in the session is based on date of birth which we verify. The cut-off age for each session varies as it depends on the applicant pool. We are and have been actively seeking new instructors.

We will call the phone numbers listed on the application. If I am unable to leave a message due to a mailbox that has not been set up or is full, I will immediately move on to the next wait list person.

Before Applying: View the Online Application Instructions link (to the left of this page) as applications filled out incorrectly will be denied. The application must be submitted by the parent or legal guardian - not the student! 
After Applying

Application Process: There are 5 traffic ed sessions per year: Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer A and Summer B. Each session has its own online-only application period. If your child does not make it into the session, you must reapply for any subsequent sessions. It may take several attempts to be accepted into a session as there are typically more applicants than there are spots. Placement is determined by date of birth.
Check the Traffic Ed Program Information & Schedules link to the left of this page for dates. Traffic Ed is not a requirement in Montana. Once a child is 16, the licensing process can be started at the Driver License Station.
