There are a number of driver education programs and online courses offered over the Internet. Are they acceptable in Michigan?

No. For a teenager (under the age of 18) to be issued a Level 1 license, he or she must present a Michigan Department of State Segment 1 certificate of completion at a branch office. Although Internet-based courses and driver education products sold over the Internet may be valuable supplemental materials, they cannot be substituted for a certified driver education program offered in Michigan.
