Driver's Education

(State Approved Joshua's Law Course)
36-Hour (Classroom and Behind the Wheel)

Learning to drive is a major milestone in a teenager's life. It's important for young or inexperienced drivers to learn safe driving techniques. There are four different ways Joshua’s Law can be satisfied for teenagers to meet the requirements for a Class D license. The program offered by Southern Crescent Technical College meets one of the options that includes 30 hours of classroom instruction and 6 additional hours of drive time with an instructor.  Most insurance companies also give a reduction (approx. 10%) on insurance premiums upon successful completion. Southern Crescent Technical College provides a (DDS approved) Driver’s Education program in cooperation with the Georgia Driver’s Education Commission (GDEC).

Participants must be between 15 and 17 years of age and possess a Learner's Permit. Participants must attend all class dates for the full class periods. They must also complete all six (6) hours of behind-the-wheel driving.

Cost for the course is $375 per student

 

CLASSES FOR 2016 ARE FULL. PLEASE CHECK BACK FOR INFORMATION ON 2017 SCHEDULE & REGISTRATION.
