(Brigham City-AP) -- The cost of learning to drive for students in Box Elder County is about to triple.

Starting this fall, driver-education fees in Box Elder will go from 30 dollars to 95 dollars.

The Utah Legislature decided to take away five (M)million dollars in state money for school districts' driver education programs.

Robert Jensen of the Box Elder School District says the school will now have to pay for the whole program -- and tripling the fees is the minimum they could afford.
