The Governor's Executive Directive for minimizing customer contact (1 student per vehicle) has expired and is, therefore, no longer effective. Driving schools must administer the in-vehicle component of driver education, behind-the-wheel, with two students in the vehicle to meet the observation requirement. This applies to juveniles and adults.
