Driver Education and SAT Preparation
Fall 2021 – Registration is now open!
Driver Education begins Sept. 13 and runs through Dec. 19. Students must be 16 years old by Sept. 13 and possess a valid driving permit. All theory classes will be offered through Google Classroom. Theory classes will be offered weekly as a combination of pre-recorded chapter reviews, to be posted every Monday. The weekly class will also include a posted assignment and quiz to be completed each week. There will be an opportunity for the students to connect with the instructor during live sessions offered weekly as a question/answer session (times TBD).
Textbooks will be required and provided, and there will be a $50 fee charged to your account if the book is not returned at the end of the course. Books will be available for in-person pickup at MPH, or a $10 fee will be charged to mail the textbook to your home.
The state is currently allowing that the 24 hours of in-vehicle instruction be completed under the supervision of a parent/guardian holding a valid NY State Driver’s License. Students must complete a driving session each week. We will help with the lesson goals, and you will be able to contact a Driver Education instructor for additional guidance, if needed. A driving checklist will be provided, along with videos introducing you to each lesson. A statement of completion must be submitted each week. A drive log must be submitted each week.
Our fall course requires 1.5 to 2 hours of class work assignments and 1.5 to 2 hours of driving lessons per week. Please be aware of the time requirements prior to registering.
Upon completion of the course, students will receive an MV-285 Student Certificate of Completion from New York State. This certificate includes the NY pre-licensing 5-hour course requirements, an insurance reduction certificate, and allows 17-year-old drivers to upgrade to a senior license.
It is important to recognize the value of maintaining integrity during this process. Our goal is to teach our students to be the most responsible, safe drivers possible.
