Students 17 years of age or under are required to complete all Drivers Education coursework prior to driver’s training.

Students under 18 years of age may receive one-on-one training with an instructor if such training is agreed to by the parent or guardian. The student is required to meet the observation requirements with at least one other student in the vehicle during in-vehicle training.

Normally there are two (2) students in each Behind the Wheel session. Each student drives and observes a 50-minute session. With parental permission, a third student can join the original two (2) students during their last 50-minute session. The third student would observe for 50 minutes and then complete their Behind the Wheel session after the first two students have departed. The third student would remain with the instructor and drive for the last 50 minutes. This option for Behind the Wheel is helpful for students with school, work or other related time constraints.
