Driver Education is a one-semester course that meets alternating days of the week. Emphasis is on promoting proper driving attitudes, understanding Pennsylvania driving laws and regulations, DUI laws, and driving maneuvers. Assistance is provided in securing a driver's permit and license.

This class is a pre-requisite for In-the-Car Driving, which is available to students during study halls.
