Summer School Driver Education Program

Seminole County Public Schools offers a summer school driver education program at four high school sites:  Hagerty, Lake Howell, Lyman and Seminole High School. The program is open to current high school students that reside in Seminole County regardless of the school they attend.

Students must be a minimum of 15 years old and hold a valid learner’s permit or operator’s license. The course includes classroom instruction, range driving and on the road instruction with certified driver education instructors.  The course options are:

Session 1: June 1-19, 2017

7:20 AM-12:00 PM OR 11:20 AM-4:00 PM

Classes meet Monday through Thursday with the exception of Friday, June 2 when classes will be held.

OR

Session 2: June 20-July 13, 2017*

7:20 AM-12:00 PM OR 11:20 AM-4:00 PM

Monday-Thursdays

*No school the week of July 3-July 6

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 in enrolling in the program need to complete the application and return it to the Guidance Office at their home school.
