ABOUT THE COURSE

A complete, professionally taught Driver Education Course that will provide the students with a comprehensive introduction to the driving experience. These experiences will include; “rules of the road”, traffic safety concerns, defensive driving, proper handling of a vehicle, driving in traffic, and problems of substance abuse as related to driving. Students must complete 24 hours of in-car instruction (6 hours behind the wheel*/18 hours of observation) and 24 hours of classroom training and receive a passing grade of 65 or higher in each category. This course is not intended to bring a new driver to higher levels of driving performance without adequate practice time outside course hours. Nor is this course designed to spend more time than is required to cover the basic elements of the NY State road test.
