Driver Education

A student must be at least 15 years old on the first day of Driver Education class.

The driver education program consists of three phases of instruction: theory (classroom), behind-the-wheel, and simula­tion. Students learn about traffic laws and enforcement, driving skills, and the responsibilities of vehicle ownership. The behind-the-wheel portion develops students' basic driving skills, tech­niques, and decision-making abilities while driving.

Advisers of students who register for only the theory (class­room) portion of Driver Education must notify the department chair. These students will not be offered behind-the-wheel instruction at a later date or receive an Instructional Driving Permit. Theory only must be taken as a pass/no-credit option.
