The classroom curriculum is a comprehensive driver training program. This program teaches basic driving maneuvers, traffic laws for safety, defensive driving, driver performance test II, driving on the highways and auto maintenance.

SPECIAL NOTE TO PARENTS
All driver education students must drive two 25 minute sessions each week at home during the Driver Education class.
Driving experience at home is most effective if the student practices the same lesson at that he/she did in school. For example, if the lesson with the instructor was making turns in residential areas, then the practice session at home should be making turns in residential areas.
In the limited school time available we do not expect students to develop into thoroughly experienced drivers. We do expect to develop the degree of competence, however, that will enable them to continue to improve under supervised practice with you.
