ALL STUDENTS WISHING TO TAKE DRIVER’S EDUCATION AT SHHS MUST ENROLL AT THE REGISTRATION MEETING SATURDAY, MARCH 2 AT 8 A.M. IN THE HIGH SCHOOL COMMONS.

Students and parents will be presented with some important information promptly at 8:00 that includes major changes to this year’s course. In addition, students will undergo a vision test, complete the state-required paperwork, submit payment for the course, and receive instructions for the online coursework. PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU WILL NOT BE SCHEDULING DRIVE TIMES AT THIS MEETING. Students will be given the opportunity to schedule a drive time at the time of online course completion.

The fee for enrollment in the SHHS driver’s ed program is $274 per in-district student or $404 per out-of-district student (includes state fee). At the meeting on March 2, parents will pay for the course using cash, check, or credit or debit card online via school computer.

 

Although the online coursework can be completed from any computer with internet access, please note that the final exam must be taken under the supervision of a Spring Hill drivers’ education instructor. Students will not be able to drive with the instructor until he or she has passed the final online exam at the high school. Students may visit the high school during regularly scheduled computer lab times to complete coursework and/or to take the final online exam.

 

Students enrolling in the SHHS driver’s education course must be 14 years old by June 1.  Although possession of a valid instruction permit is encouraged, it is not necessary for a student to have a valid instruction permit prior to enrolling in driver's education with Spring Hill High School. Once the coursework is complete, an instruction permit can be provided by the school that is valid only while driving with the instructor (students possessing this type of permit would be in violation of the law if they attempt to drive outside of their instruction time, even with a licensed driver).
