The Driver Education Program offered is open to any area high school age student. This program is not available to ADULTS who have graduated from high school. Driver Education Program is Certified by Arizona Department of Education and Arizona Department of Transportation/Motor Vehicle Division for participation in the Arizona High School Driver Education Program. Instructors are ADE Certified with the Driver Education Endorsement. All eligible high school students can participate. Please plan accordingly and make sure the eligible student finishes the Behind The Wheel driving time prior to turning 18 years of age.

Please allow several weeks after the classroom portion is completed before the BTW is scheduled. Please read all the information provided on the registration form. Please choose a class that allows for plenty of time to complete the BTW. Registration fee is $400 and is Arizona Tax Credit eligible.

Thank you!
