Class Location and Cost
To the student:
As you enter the world of driving, please accept the fact that driving a vehicle is to be taken seriously and with a tremendous amount of responsibility. Your actions affect not only yourself, but also all highway users.
Driving is a privilege and a major turning point in the lives of teenagers and their parents. The cost of driving, the risks, the pressures, the responsibilities…all speak to the need for a well-trained and educated driver. Driving is not something to learn by trial-and-error. Driving involves skill, knowledge, and most importantly: low-risk driving habits.
