A complete, professionally taught Driver Education Course that will provide the students with a comprehensive introduction to the driving experience. These experiences will include; “rules of the road”, traffic safety concerns, defensive driving, proper handling of a vehicle, driving in traffic, and problems of sub- stance abuse as related to driving. Students must complete 24 hours of in-car instruction (6 hours behind the wheel*/18 hours observation) and 24 hours of classroom training and receive a passing grade of 65 or higher in each category. This course is not intended to bring a new driver to higher levels of driving performance without adequate practice time outside course hours. Nor is this course designed to spend more time than is required to cover the basic elements of the NY State road test.


Students will receive an MV-285 (Course Completion Certificate) from the district in the mail 3-4 weeks after the completion of the entire course . This provides an insurance reduction to students who qualify; and a driver’s license Class D at age 17 upon successfully passing the NY State road test & submit- ting their MV-285 to DMV. MV-278s (5 Hour cards) MAY be issued by the lecture instructor during the course, IF available and time permits.


Students MUST reside within the Wantagh School District.

Students MUST be 16 and obtain a NYS permit prior to registration and  must upload a copy online with registration.  



Administrative fee of 3.75% will be included on MySchoolBucks to defer the cost of online processing.  If refund is requested the administrative fee will not be refunded.
