    This site is useful for students preparing to take the Learner's Permit Test by taking the practice exams.


    Students take Driver Education their 10th grade year. They have 9 weeks of Driver Education and 9 weeks of Physical Education. Once students complete and pass the Driver Ed classroom, they are then eligible to begin behind the wheel if they have their learner;s permit. Behind the Wheel education is completed through private companies now and needs to be completed before students can get their license. 


     **If a student misses more than 9 class periods of DE, they automatically fail the course because they did not meet the state requirement for seat time.
