Driver Education

DHS Driving Academy

Upon reaching the age of 16, a student may elect to take behind the wheel by registering in the physical education class. There is a fee of $155.00 for the course plus a $10.00 permit fee. This course is not a required part of the driver theory course. Priority for assignment of students is based on age (oldest first), student availability, and teacher availability. Students must have completed or be presently enrolled in Driver Theory to be eligible for behind the wheel. All facets of driving an automobile are covered including parallel parking. Every effort is made to form a “defensive” attitude in all young drivers. A certificate of completion is issued to all successful students.
