Missouri Western State University and the St. Joseph School District will be offering driver's education this summer for $50 per student.
Each course includes 30 hours of classroom work, 12 hours of observation time in the vehicle and six hours behind the wheel. Normal class time is 9:00 am-12:00 noon Monday-Friday. Driving and observation times will be arranged with the instructor, and may be scheduled outside of the dates the class meets.
Successful completion of the course will entitle you to receive a certificate verifying that all requirements of the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education have been met.
To enroll in this program, during the class and driving schedule, the student must:
- be 15-19 years of age
(photocopy of birth certificate required)
- be currently enrolled in school
- not have graduated from high school
If you do not meet these requirements there are spots available for $225.
You do not need a permit for this class.
For this program to be beneficial to all students, some ground rules have been established.
Discipline problems in the classroom or vehicle will result in removal from the program.
You must attend all classes and driving sessions to receive a certificate of completion. In the case of emergency or illness, contact the instructor for make-up work and time.
Since classes and driving times will entail several hours of sitting, the instructors will schedule sufficient breaks for the students.
