Driver Education

Williamsville Central School District offers a driver education program as a service to the community.  Sessions are offered in the spring, summer and fall, and are open to all District residents. The course combines the benefits of practical driving along with defensive driving techniques for safe and responsible operation of a motor vehicle. All students must be 16 years of age by the beginning of the class date and hold a valid New York State learner's permit or driver's license.

Successful completion of this course will qualify the student for DMV Certificate of completion (MV-285) and insurance reduction certificate. Class will consist of 24 hours of in-vehicle instruction, including 6 hours of behind-the-wheel driving and 24 hours of classroom instruction. The program will include a written exam and driving skills test.

Students are required to attend all sessions. This requires a commitment on the part of students, parents and teachers in order to fulfill the New York State course requirements.  All missed classes must be made up.  A fee of $45 will be charged for any missed sessions. The fee to replace a lost certificate is $10.

A student enrolled in the Williamsville Central School District who cannot afford the driver education fee may contact Mr. Boardman at 626-8200 and submit a letter stating need and current status of eligibility for free or reduced lunch.  Please send in a registration card.
