Driver’s Education

Driver’s Education

A complete, professionally taught driver’s education course that will provide all students with a comprehensive introduction to the driving experience.

The Course

At the end of all sessions, students will have received 24 hours of classroom instruction and 24 hours of in-the-car driving related to “rules of the road,” traffic safety concerns, defensive driving, proper handling of vehicle, parking, driving in traffic and problems of substance abuse as related to driving. Students who complete the program with a passing grade of 65 in each category will receive the Certificate of Completion (MV-285), the opportunity to have a senior driver’s license (Class 5) at age 17 and an insurance reduction according to the policies of your insurance carrier. Students must obtain from the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) the 50–hour completion form required for graduated licensing.
