Upon completion of the 30 hours classroom requirement, students will be scheduled to complete their 6 hours of behind-the-wheel instruction.

  • The  behind-the-wheel will be held after school and on  Saturdays.
  • The Driver Education Center will make every effort to schedule students for the behind-the-wheel phase within 3 months of completion of the classroom phase.
  • Students will be scheduled for behind-the-wheel according to age (oldest to youngest) and availability.
  • No absences are allowed for the behind-the-wheel phase.

Important:  When choosing a session consider all the activities (sports practice and games, band, ROTC, etc.) that you might be involved with.  Check the days, times and the dates that Driver Education will be offered at the school you attend.  Remember students are expected to attend all class sessions.  You are not allowed to come in late or leave early.  There are no excused or unexcused absences in Driver Education.  It is State Law that you must attend a minimum of 30 hours of the classroom phase.

Transportation for both phases must be provided by the parent.

Students must attend the 30 hours of the classroom phase, complete the 6 hours of behind-the-wheel phase and be 15 years of age before they can apply for a Learners Permit.
