DAR File No.: 33519
Filed: 03/30/2010 04:32:45 PM


Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:

Subsection 53-3-505(1): In accordance with Title 63G, Chapter 3, Utah Administrative Rulemaking Act, the Commissioner shall make rules regarding the requirements for: (d)(i) driving simulation devices that are fully interactive under Subsection 53-3-505.5(2)(b); and (ii) driving simulation devices that are not fully interactive under Subsection 53-3-505.5(2)(c).

Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:

No written comments have been received.

Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:

Although the use of driving simulators is not widespread in training new drivers, they are used in several programs statewide. As a result, this rule is necessary to outline the appropriate accounting of behind the wheel instruction time required to successfully complete a course of driving instruction.
