What is Joshua’s Law?

Joshua’s Law requires teens who are seeking their initial Class-D drivers license to complete an approved Drivers Education course in the State of Georgia. This requirement came into effect in 2007. Joshua’s Law also provides insurance discounts and a tax credit to students who complete at least a basic Drivers Education program that includes at least 6 hours of behind the wheel driving.
