Utah Teen Driving Programs


Utah Teen Driving Program at Joyce’s Driving School

We are your local Park City premier driving school.  What makes us special?  We have 20 years of experience as school owners and instructors.  Teens and adults who complete our program can safely navigate our roadways with the proper decision making skills necessary to drive on their own.

Here are some state specific details:
In Utah, teens under the age of 19 are required to participate in a drivers education program to get their license.

Joyce’s Driving School offers an on-line IMPROV S.P.I.D.E.R. Drivers Education Program + in-car driving lessons for our teen students.

This program is required for anyone under the age of 19 looking to get a license.

Details about this on-line IMPROV S.P.I.D.E.R. Drivers Education Program can be found below.


IMPROV S.P.I.D.E.R. Drivers Education Program

Our IMPROV S.P.I.D.E.R. Drivers Education Program teaches the driving decisions and concepts needed for teens to navigate our roadways safely and confidently. The JDS activation email (sent when the JDS team sees your registration) will provide you with credentials to log into your student portal from the HOME page of  our web site. You will access the on-line IMPROV S.P.I.D.E.R. Drivers Education Program from your student portal.  Students will take an in-person written test to pass the IMPROV S.P.I.D.E.R. Drivers Education Program when they are done with the program.  This test is in addition to the test given in the final chapter of the IMRPOV program due to Utah State Laws.  Tests will be scheduled in a 30-minute time slot on the student portal.

New drivers 16 and 17 years of age must do each of the following steps to receive a license after their 16th birthday:

What Our Clients Say About Us

  • Just wanted to post a thank you message to Joyce’s driving school! From day one it has been flawless and I highly recommend having your son/daughter taking the road test with Joyce’s vs DMV. We didn’t get to the DMV till 3:45pm but since he had already completed the road test, we were able to go in right away and walk out 30 minutes later with his license. Thanks so much! From whoever answered my calls to the instructors, it was perfection and I will continue to recommend your business.

  • Hello!! Just wanted to share a quick story. My daughter took her driver's test last Thursday (she passed, yeah!!!) When she returned the first thing her instructor/tester(?) said to me was "money well spent mom". I was confused at first but he went on to say that he noticed she took driver's ed with Joyce's and what a wonderful job she did and how great of a driver she was. He said he had 3 other students from Joyce's that day and that they all did a great job. He said they must have some great instructors at Joyce's and what a great job they do. I'm sure he see's students from many schools in the area and what a compliment to Joyce's that he would go out of his way to mention that. Thought you should know! Thanks Joyce's!!!!!!
