Hamilton offers drivers’ education

Hamilton High School students interested in taking drivers’ education classes this summer have until May 30 to register. Forms are available in the high school office during school hours.

Students will take 15 theory classes from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. June 14 to July 2 in Room 259 of the high school. If the 8 a.m. class fills up, another will be held from 10:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.

The simulation portion of the class will be conducted July 6-22 and all behind-the-wheel lessons will be completed by Aug. 2. Times are 8 a.m. – 10 a.m., 10 a.m. – noon, and 12:15 p.m. – 2:15 p.m. Students will complete six simulation classes and six behind-the-wheel lessons.

Fees are $175 for theory-simulation, $175 for behind-the-wheel and $350 for the full program.

Students who will be 16 years old by Aug. 31, 2010 are eligible to enroll in the theory-simulation and behind-the-wheel portions of the program. Temporary permit forms will be filled out in class and handed out after studying “The Motorist Manual.” Students must document 30 clock hours, 10 hours at night with their parents or guardians, and hold their permit six months without an accident or ticket before taking their road test.
