Drivers Education Syllabus

Driver/Safety Education is a nine-week course designed to help prepare for the safe operation of an automobile. The information covered during class will include the process of obtaining a learner’s permit/driver’s license, safe driving techniques, vehicle controls, safe interaction with other highway users and the laws associated with driving. Since driving involves a great deal of risk, the information is very important and should be taken seriously. It is imperative to gain as much information about driving as possible.

 Classroom Rules:

  1. Do not talk or be disruptive while the instructor is teaching.  If you have a comment or question raise your hand.
  2. Be respectful to classmates, the instructor and the room.
  3. Come to class prepared and ready to participate.
  4. Be on time.

Please keep in mind this is only a nine week course so it moves at a fairly rapid pace. Homework, although infrequent, is due the next class day unless you are absent. If you miss school on the day of a test you will make it up the next day you are in school; no exceptions unless there are extenuating circumstances (extended illness, concussion etc..)  I will be using powerpoint presentations with short video clips and longer instructional videos when appropriate. In addition, we will be driving with a real car on real roads. Maturity is a big factor in making a safe teen driver so mature behavior is expected in all classes and activities.
