DRIVER EDUCATION: HIGHWAY SAFETY ONLINE THEORY INSTRUCTION


NO CREDIT COST: $125*


The main goal of this course is for students to acquire driver knowledge, including up-to-date safe driving and defensive driving techniques. Each concept is reinforced with study guides and movies, as well as outside resources. The Online Theory Course consists of 19 chapters and contains a quiz at the end of each chapter. Students must score 80% or higher on each quiz before moving on to the next chapter. In addition, students must score 80% or higher on the final exam in order to receive a certificate of completion. Online Theory takes approximately 30 hours to complete. Students will have one year (12 months) to complete the course.


BEHIND THE WHEEL INSTRUCTION (10, 11, 12) 6 HOURS


NO CREDIT COST: $464*


This instruction is necessary to complete minimum requirements for possible insurance reduction and a regular license. This phase includes six hours of actual on-the-road driving instruction with an instructor from an outside contractor in a dual-control car. Lessons may be scheduled during study halls, during major subjects on a rotating basis, after school, and on weekends. The instructor can administer the driving test to students during the last half-hour of their lesson if they have completed the theory portion training and have had their permit for six months. This eliminates the need to go to a Pennsylvania Driving Center to take the test.
