Ill. Admin. Code tit. 50, § 8000.40 - Course Instructor Approval

Current through Register Vol. 46, No. 15, April 8, 2022

All instructors must be approved by the Program Administrator prior to their conducting an approved course.

a) In order to be approved, an instructor must:
1) have the delivery agency submit to the Program Administrator a completed application on a form prescribed by the Secretary. The application shall certify that the instructor has successfully completed the sponsoring agency's instructor preparation course and has been approved by the agency as an instructor of the approved course and shall certify that the instructor has experience in communication skills, working knowledge of curriculum topics, ability to organize material for presentation and ability to make accurate assessments of driving attitude and behavior; and
2) have held a valid driver's license for a period of at least two consecutive years immediately prior to the date of application. A lapse in the renewal of the driver's license of 30 days or less shall not render the applicant ineligible. The Secretary of State may, in his or her discretion, grant a waiver for a lapse in the renewal of the driver's license in excess of 30 days. Factors to be considered by the Secretary when reviewing a request for waiver include, but are not limited to, the length of the driver's license lapse, number of sanctions or convictions, if any, on the driving record, and any extenuating circumstances that prevented the applicant from renewing in a timely manner. An instructor's driving privileges must not have been suspended or revoked for one or more traffic violations within the past seven years.
b) An instructor's approval must be renewed every two years by having the delivery agency submit a completed application for approval to the Program Administrator.
