The purpose of driver education is to develop the knowledge, attitudes, decision-making and physical skills that enable students to be safe and responsible participants in the increasingly complex environment of our transportation system. The course consists of three phases. The classroom phase is scheduled during the regular school day. The driving phase is scheduled during the regular school day and, on some occasions, evenings, breaks, weekends or into the summer. The final phase is supervised practice, including forty hours of guided outside driving experience and a mandatory parent/guardian/student meeting.
To sign up for Driver Ed students must follow these steps:
- Complete the Driver Education sign up form
- Have a VT State Permit
Seniors and Juniors have priority and every effort will be made to place them in a first semester class. In the event that all Seniors and Juniors are placed, the classes will be filled with Sophomores prior to Step Up Day. Students who sign up after course registration is completed are subject to space availability regardless of grade level.
