The Superintendent of Public Instruction shall make an additional allowance to each school district maintaining a high school or high schools, each county superintendent of schools, the California Youth Authority, and the State Department of Education as reimbursement for the actual expense of replacing vehicles used exclusively in automobile driver training programs and of replacing simulators used in such programs, but the amount shall not exceed three-fourths of that part of the actual cost of instructing pupils in automobile driver training during the preceding fiscal year which was: (1) in excess of eighty dollars ($80) per pupil instructed, and (2) expended by the district, the county superintendent of schools, California Youth Authority, or State Department of Education replacing the vehicles and simulators. Reimbursement for vehicle shall be computed for only that portion of the total mileage used exclusively in driver training programs.
For purposes of computing reimbursement, whenever a school district, a county superintendent of schools, the California Youth Authority, or the State Department of Education replaces a driver training vehicle or simulator purchased by the district, the county superintendent of schools, California Youth Authority, or Department of Education with a vehicle or simulator that is a gift or loan, the purchase price of the new or acquired equipment shall be deemed to be the market value of the vehicle or simulator acquired through a gift or loan.
