Driver Education is a class available to students who are at least 15 years old prior to beginning the course in grades 10-12. The instructional phases consist of classroom, simulation, driving range, and on-street driving instruction.
The course will be taught as a one-unit course with sufficient instructional contact time with the driver education teacher and the inclusion of safety education. Learners permits are not required but are highly recommended to allow parents to work with the student to coincide with the drive time that they will receive in class to prepare for the driving test.
