Day Program

    • Students attending Buchholz, Eastside, GHS, Newberry, and Santa Fe may take Driver Education as an elective, semester-long course during the school year.

    • Registration for the course is done at the school during the normal class registration process.

    • Students take the classroom portion of the course at their high school and earn .5 elective credit upon successful completion of the course.

    • Behind the wheel training (lab) will be available at the Traffic Safety Center (TSC) during the evenings (return to the main page and click night program for more info).

    • At the TSC, students are trained in three driver education formats: in state-of-the-art driving simulators, driving on a controlled range, and last, driving in actual street traffic.

    • All instructors are teachers certified in driver education and hold third-party tester (TPT) credentials that allow them to administer driving tests to students.

    Contact your high school guidance department for further information on the driver education day program.
