2020-21 Driver's Ed Information

  • Our program has been co-sponsored by Driver Education Inc. and SLPHS for the past 22 years. We require our instructors to have dual licensure through the Department of Education and the Department of Public Safety. Families can trust that their children will receive the best training possible.

    Parent/Guardian Classes

    We offer online parent/guardian classes for each Driver's Ed section. The purpose of the class is to explain the process of obtaining the permit and share helpful strategies for teaching young drivers.

    Those in attendance will receive a certificate to reduce their young person's supervised driving hours from 50 hours to 40 hours.

    Parents will be automatically invited to a class when their child enrolls. Classes during the school year will be on the FIRST TUESDAY of their child's Driver's Ed section and will last 90 minutes. If you cannot make the meeting, you are welcome to enroll in another class during the year.
