Driver Education

Williamsville Central School District offers a driver education program as a service to the community.  Sessions are offered in the spring, summer (2 sessions) 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.  It is suggested that you check with your insurance company to be sure this fulfills their requirements.

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.  A student cannot miss more than one class and one driving session. The district program offers one classroom make up and one driving make up only.

Driver Education is only available to current students, not students who graduate in June 2018.

Registration for this program will be accepted BY MAIL ONLY, postmarked on or after May 7, 2018. Registrations postmarked before that date will be considered postmarked on May 7, 2018.
