VT Teen Driver Ed

Course Description/Requirements:

This course is for teenagers or adults who have a current Vermont learner's permit and want to obtain a Vermont driver's license. While this course meets all state requirements, it places special emphasis on crash avoidance, situational awareness, and zone control. This course includes an academic component and a driving skills component. The academic component includes 15 or 16 classroom lessons, each lesson being 2 hours long. The driving component typically includes 12 or 13 behind-the-wheel lessons. Each behind-the-wheel lesson usually includes the student receiving ½ hour of instruction and observing an additional ½ to 1 hour of instruction. However, there are no scheduled drive times during the first or last day of class.

During the first class, I will construct a drive schedule with parents and teens, or, I will confirm a drive schedule that was tentatively established prior to parent's night. I will also explain the state requirements and documentation procedure; therefore, at least one parent or guardian should attend this class.

To be successful, students must attend 30 hours of classroom instruction, 6 hours of behind-the-wheel instruction, and 6 hours of observing behind-the-wheel instruction. Therefore, classroom attendance is MANDATORY. Students must also maintain an 80 average.

Successful students will be issued a state certificate stating that they have completed a basic driver education course approved by the Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles that includes a minimum of 30 hours of classroom instruction, 6 hours of behind-the-wheel instruction, and 6 hours of observation.

The state road exam is not considered part of the course. However, Mr. Garrow may choose to administer the state road test to eligible students as a service free of charge. This service is limited and dependent on Mr. Garrow's schedule. Most students find this service to be an advantage because they do not have to schedule an appointment at the DMV, they can use the driver education car, and they know exactly what to expect. Although we do not charge for this service, the DMV is collecting $5 for all third-party exams. Of course, students always have the option to be tested by the DMV. To be eligible, students must be 16, possess a permit for 1 year, complete the course, and record 40 hours of practice driving on the DMV Log Sheet, including 10 hours of night driving.

A $200 non refundable deposit is due when the student mails in the application. The deposit goes toward the tuition. The balance of the tuition is due at the end of orientation. However, we would be happy to set up a payment plan if necessary. Students who pay the full amount of tuition when they apply will have the first choices of selecting their drive times based on the order that the applications are received. The next choice of drive times will be based on the order that I receive the $200 deposit with the applications. Also, please include a copy of the permit with the application.
