Behind-the-Wheel Sessions


Scheduling behind-the-wheel training has become fluid due to quarantining of schools, instructors, and students. Some have been quarantined more than once. Once a student has completed ALL of the classroom requirements and paid the driver education fee it has been taking six to eight weeks before a student is scheduled to drive.


Guidelines for Behind-the-Wheel Training



Student needs to provide and wear a cloth face mask.


Only two students are allowed in the driver education car at a time.


Instructor will ask the following questions of each student before every driving session:


1.       Have you had close contact (within 6 feet for at least 15 minutes) in the last 14 days with someone diagnosed with Covid-19, or has any health department or health care provider been in contact with you and advised you to quarantine?


2.       Since you were last at school, have you had any of these symptoms?


Fever, Chills, Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, new cough, new loss of taste or smell.


3.       Since you were last at school, have you been diagnosed with Covid-19?


4.       The student’s temperature will be checked.  Temperature must be at or below 100.4⁰F.


Parents/guardians should not leave the school property until they know their student has been cleared to enter the vehicle per instructor screening


Parents/guardians are required to practice social distancing and must wear cloth face coverings when interacting with the teacher/instructor or others on the driving site.


Parents/guardians must be reachable anytime during the student’s driving session.


If you email or call the driver education office, it may take a few days before you get an answer.  We are 4 months behind due to the Covid-19 Pandemic and working as quickly as possible to catch up.  We appreciate your patience and understanding.
