Bill description: HB 45 would reduce the number of training hours required to obtain a license as a driving instructor.  

Rating: +1

Does it increase barriers to entry into the market? Examples include occupational licensure, the minimum wage, and restrictions on home businesses. Conversely, does it remove barriers to entry into the market?

Under current law, applicants for licensure as a driving instructor must obtain 60 hours of training in an apprenticeship program and 108 hours of behind-the-wheel training.

HB 45 would lower these requirements to 30 hours in an apprenticeship program and 16 hours of behind-the-wheel training. In total, applicants would be required to obtain only one-fifth of the training that is currently required to obtain a license to work in this industry. This would dramatically lower the government-imposed burden to enter the driving instruction business.
