Seminole County Public Schools offers a free after school driver education program at three high school sites: Lyman, Seminole and Winter Springs High School. The program is open to any student that resides in Seminole County regardless of the school that they attend. The program is a collaborative effort between Seminole County Public Schools, the Seminole County Board of County Commissioners, METROPLAN Orlando and the local municipalities.
Students must be a minimum of 15 years old and hold a valid learner’s license. The course includes classroom instruction, range driving and on the road instruction with certified driver education instructors. This is a semester course with students attending class from 3:15-5:15 PM on either Monday and Wednesday or Tuesday and Thursday. Students earn .5 credit upon successful completion of the course. Transportation is not provided.
Statistics from the program show that students that complete this course have a lower rate of traffic citations and crashes during their teen years compared to students that have not taken the course. The roadways in Central Florida are congested and students now deal with the added pressures of cell phone use and texting while driving. Safe and defensive driving techniques are stressed throughout this course.
Students interested enrolling in the program may obtain an application from the high school guidance office.
Driver Education is also offered as a course in summer school. Information on the dates and locations of the classes is available at the high schools.
DMV Practice Tests. 100% Free.
