Traffic Safety Education & D.O.L. Exams

Driver's Education
Driver's Ed is designed for students 15-18 years old. Students will learn the rules of the road, understand Washington State laws, and get coached driving experience.

Driver's Ed is a partnership between the school & parents. Our instructors will share a state approved curriculum in the classroom and behind-the-wheel. Parents play an essential role in practicing  the behind-the-wheel concepts in-between schedule drives.
With successful completion of this program, students will be eligible to take the DOL Knowledge (written) & Skills (driving) Exams
