*** This course is great for basic skills; however your student will still be in need of practice and logging hours
behind the wheel under your supervision. Statistics have shown that the first five years of driving are the
most critical. You can be of great help to your student by helping them in making sound judgments during this
initial learning time. During the times your student is riding with you, please point out situations that may
lead to trouble unless proper defensive driving techniques are used.
Must have learners license to attend class, please submit copy with registration, can be submitted first day of

No refunds will be available as this is a class very much in demand and we have to turn students away. We
will do our best to accommodate each student busy summer schedules with extracurricular and family
activities, please let us know if you have any questions. If your student participates in football, volleyball
or cheer please mark on registration. Coach Wood, Coach Hill, Coach Pannell and I all work together to
ensure all who need to take the class are able to do so.
