Why take Driver Education?


Drivers Over 18 or Turns 18  / Obtain License While Taking Class  

The driver education program is a state subsidized program that is how we can offer the tuition for a great price of $325.   This price is only funded for students with permits and not for licensed drivers. If a student has a license, obtains their license while taking the class, is 18 or older before graduating from the class, an additional $210.00 will be charged.
Driver ed is a part of the process for obtaining a provisional license (permit).  18 year old do not have to have a provisional license. That is why the state does not cover over 18.
