The course shall include classroom instruction and on-street driving or simulated driving in a driving simulator. No pupil may participate in on-street driving instruction unless the pupil is enrolled in or has completed a course in classroom instruction.

(2) The department shall adopt by rule a procedure to certify that a traffic safety education course meets curriculum standards established under subsection (1) of this section.

(3) The department shall adopt rules establishing qualifications for a person to teach a traffic safety education course.
