This 48-hour non-credit program is designed to educate students on appropriate driving skills and habits as well as playing a responsible role in the highway transportation/safety system. In addition to the classroom, there will be 24 hours of concurrent in-car instruction (6 hours behind the wheel and 18 hours of observation). Pending DMV approval, successful completion of this course may satisfy the 5-hour pre-licensing course requirement, please check back for updates.
This course is NOT, by itself, intended as a means to pass the road test. Additional behind the wheel practice is required by DMV (at least 50 hours) in order to take the road test and be ready to obtain a driver’s license.
