Traffic Education

Welcome to the Bozeman Schools Traffic Education Program!

The application period for the Summer A Session has closed. The next available application period will be for the Summer B 2024 session. The application period will begin at 9:00 am on April 29 and will run through May 5. Please check back soon for more details.

NOTE: Traffic Ed is not a requirement in Montana. The Student Relief Program allows 15+ year olds to start the licensing process without participating in a Traffic Education Course. Review the information at dojmt.gov/getyourpermit to determine if the option is appropriate for you and your student.

General Information: There are typically 6 traffic ed sessions per year: Fall, Fall 2, Winter, Spring, Summer A and Summer B. We will run the Fall 2 session if there are enough instructors available. Each session has its own online-only application period. We do not take continuous applications. Any applications must be done during the application periods. 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. Please continue to check this website for future sessions and application dates.
