Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process.
Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes,
statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect.
If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has
not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already
been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes
made to the current law.

Enhanced skills driving schools.
(a) As used in this Code, "enhanced skills driving school" means a school for teaching advanced driving skills, such as emergency braking, crash avoidance, and defensive driving techniques to licensed drivers for a fee, and does not mean a school for preparing students for examinations given by the Secretary of State.
(b) No person, firm, association, partnership, or corporation shall operate an enhanced skills driving school unless issued a license by the Secretary. No enhanced skills driving school may prepare students for examinations given by the Secretary of State unless the school is also licensed under Article IV of Chapter 6 of this Code.
(c) All behind-the-wheel instructions, practice, and experience offered by enhanced skills driving schools shall be on private property, such as race course facilities. The Secretary of State shall have the authority to inspect all facilities and to adopt rules to provide standards for enhanced skills driving school facilities. No behind-the-wheel instruction, practice, or experience may be given on public roadways.
(d) The curriculum for courses and programs offered by enhanced skills driving schools shall be reviewed and approved by the Secretary.
