Advance registration and payment are also required.
Behind-The-Wheel driving is required for these classes. These times will be scheduled prior to the first classroom meeting. There is no guarantee that the student will be able to do their BTW training during the course dates, so scheduling drive time prior to or after the course dates may be necessary.

•20 hours of classroom instruction
•5 hours hands-on driving
•5 hours of observation (suggested not required)
•1/2 hour Behind-The-Wheel Drive Test for Provisional Operator’s Permit (POP)
