Recent class updates: a 90 minute supplemental parent class, “Point of Impact” for parents and students, and a 40 hour state mandated supervised driving log, 15 hours of which are nighttime hours. If parents do not participate in the “Point of Impact” presentation, the supervised driving log must show 50 hours of driving time, 15 hours of which are nighttime hours. This driving log is required by the state and is to be shown when the student applies for their driver's license. This log MUST be on the official state form!
It has come to our attention students are asking for days off. Students must attend all sessions as the state requires 30 hours of seat time for this class. The only excuses are illness or a family emergency such as a funeral and only one absence is allowed even with these situations. No other absences will be granted! Hunting, sports or other optional activities are not valid excuses. Be sure your child is on time, prepared and has made transportation arrangements to and from this site. Students please bring a notebook and pencil to class.
As mandated by the state, when you register for Driver’s Ed. classroom you will automatically be registered for Behind the Wheel. The total cost of our program will be due upon registration. Out of district students or partial program costs will differ. Please contact the Community Ed. office for these situations.
This 30 hour classroom program is offered 3 times a year: At mid/end of October, March and the first two weeks school is out in the summer. We try to work around sports schedules. Behind the wheel is in summer. We may take a few students in the spring and early fall. If you miss a scheduled time for your training and do not notify the instructor, there is a $40/hour fee for the missed time.
You may register online-- once you register and pay, you will get a drop down form you will fill out and it will give you classroom dates to choose. Click on the Register Online tab at the left of this page to register online. We suggest the student be 15 when they take the class so when they go for their permit test the information is fresh in their minds.
All information will be available in the high school and Community Ed. offices and online below.
Registration online is strongly recommended as these classes fill quickly! Register Here!
