Driver’s Education Defensive Driving 4-Hour Course

The Driver's Education Course is a defensive driving crash-avoidance program. It is offered to young adults and is designed to reduce or prevent injuries and collisions. The goal is to help teenagers drive "smarter" - increasing their knowledge and influencing their attitudes - in order to save lives.

You must attend a Defensive Driving and a Rules of the Road class before starting your behind-the-wheel lessons. You must also have your learner's permit before starting with the behind-the-wheel lessons.
