LANSING, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A bill is being introduced Wednesday which will allow parents to teach their children how to drive, without the help of a driving school.

State Senator Rick Jones is introducing the bill, saying driver's education courses can cost hundreds of dollars.

He believes this puts a burden on poor and big families with several young drivers.

Right now, the courses are currently required for kids between the ages of 14 and 18.

Driver's ed instructors say they are concerned that parents could pass on their bad driving habits to their children.
