FALL Driver Education Program 2021

  • Welcome!  Our Driver Education program is back for the Fall of 2021. 

    Our lecture course will be available in-person this year.  

    ABOUT THE PROGRAM

    Students must complete 16 sessions of classroom instruction with a passing grade of 65 in each category.  The required 24 hours of in-vehicle instruction must be completed by a parent/guardian.  Car classes with a certified driving instructor are not being offered at this time.  You may choose to hire your own private driving instructor or complete the driving portion under parent/guardian supervision.  At the end of the 16 lectures students will have received 24 hours of classroom instruction related to "Rules of the Road,” traffic safety concerns, defensive driving, proper handling of a vehicle, parking, driving in traffic and problems of substance abuse as related to driving.
