Few things are more important to a high school student than obtaining a driver’s license. Sadly, many of these young drivers will face tragedy through loss of property, physical capability, or even life. The leading cause of death in teenagers is related to motor vehicles. Driver Education is given the task of creating safe motoring for a lifetime. Educating students with skill, attitudes and knowledge prepares them to make our highways safer for everyone. Driver Education teachers instill effective communication methods that will encourage young drivers to respect the automobile, the vehicles that share the road, the laws and consequences of impaired driving, and acceptable mental and social skills when faced with challenging driving situations. High school Driver Education classes create strong citizens who are aware of responsibilities as skilled drivers in a complex highway transportation system.
Box Elder School District sponsors a driver education program that occurs outside of the regular school day. Contact your high school for specifics on schedules, fees, and options.
