Niagara County Community College, in partnership with AAA of Western New York, is offering driver's education classes to young adults in the community who would like to learn to drive. The program provides a more comprehensive understanding of what is involved in becoming a safe driver.
Students who successfully complete this program will receive an MV-285 and a certificate of completion, which they can present to the Department of Motor Vehicles to register for their road test. The MV-285 certificate will allow students to receive a senior license at age 17, with parent's permission.
Twenty-four hours of classroom and 24 hours of lab (drive portion) are included in the course. Students learn proper driving techniques, which aim to provide them with the skills to become competent and safe drivers.
The class will run from 5-8 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays from Jan. 14 to March 15. There are no classes Feb. 16 and 18, in observance of Presidents' Day. Classes will meet at the Sanborn campus, 3111 Saunders Settlement Road (Room E142).
The cost to participate is $455. Students must attend all 48 hours of class.
AAA provides a one-year basic membership to those
who complete the program.
