*cost can vary based on location.
Driver’s education needs to be one of the student’s top priorities during this time. We will be flexible in scheduling around school activities. Driver’s education should be a priority over all other activities. Students should bring their personal schedules to the first class for scheduling of driving sessions.
Classroom Absences: Students must attend 30 hours of classroom instruction. Make up classes will be subject to a $50/class fee for an absence.
Only school activities will be considered excused absences.
Driving Session Absences: Any student who fails to show up for their scheduled behind the wheel instruction without prior 24 hour notification from a parent/guardian will be subject to a $50 fee.
Students must pass the classroom AND driving portions of the course to receive the IDOT certificate.
