Drivers Ed

by Dina Houser

I was able to secure Drivers Ed classes at Joel Barlow High School through The Next Street Driving School. This class was not originally on their schedule so we need 10 students in order to get the class going. Participant must be 16 years old. A learner’s permit is NOT required to enroll or begin classes.

The classes will be held Mon 7/17Thurs 7/20 and Mon 7/24Thurs 7/27. Classes run Mon-Thurs 9am-1pm for 8 days total which is their summer accelerated course of 30 hours of class time.

The cost for this is $699 and it also includes 8 hours of private driving instruction that can be scheduled at your convenience online.

This is a quick way to take the instructional class and it is also a nice break on insurance costs.

Please contact me, Dina Houser at dinahouser@gmail.com if your child will be interested and available to take the class. I will provide the school with a list of students to ensure we have minimum 10 as needed. Feel free to pass this info along to anyone who may be interested.

Next Street will contact you directly for payment and processing.

FYI if your child needs to miss any classes, they can always make them up at any Next Street location at your convenience.
