Driver Education Summer Course
Your child will receive 1/2 school credit if they complete the course. Driver Education develops understanding of and adaptation to traffic in terms of knowledge, attitudes, and skills. The course includes a study of traffic safety for pedestrians and drivers, as they are involved in physical and man-made laws, enforcement agencies and policies, traffic psychology, automobile purchasing, insurance, budgeting, consumer mechanics, and traffic engineering.
Driver Education develops a sense of civic responsibility and an attitude of personal mechanics, and traffic performance. Classroom instruction will be provided via Google Classroom.
Behind the wheel experience in a dual controlled automobile is provided during the course. Driver Education develops knowledge, habits, and skills related to learning to stop and start, to shift, to steer, to make right and left turns, to drive in traffic, to complete turnabouts, and to park.
Development of attitudes basic to accepting civic responsibility in traffic and to the safe operation of the automobile are stressed. For those students who do not receive simulation training, behind the wheel training will consist of the dual-controlled automobile use for three to six hours of driving. For students who receive simulation training, behind the wheel training will consist of one to three hours.
