Drivers Education Program
Driver’s Education is back at Regis High School. We are very excited to offer this important program to our families at no additional cost. The course is open to any Regis student who has not received an Oregon Driver’s License.
- Cost: The program is included in your child’s educational offerings. There are no additional fees.
- Course Length: Approximately 9 weeks (class must be completed in a minimum of 30 days and a maximum of 180 days per ODOT requirements)
- A minimal number of Behind the Wheel Drives will take place in other classes. A schedule will be created in advance. Arrangements will be made with the classroom teacher.
- Students who complete the class will receive credit for the DMV in-car driving test. Once you successfully complete the Regis Drivers Education Program, you will be fully qualified to get your physical license at the DMV.
- Students must have an Oregon Instruction Permit before entering the class.
- Students are required to complete 30 hours of classroom instruction.
- Students are required to complete six hours of driving instruction and must observe another student driver for six hours.
- Parents are responsible for five hours of driving with their child. These hours must be logged. In addition, a parent (guardian) and the student must attend an introductory meeting.
Benefits & Scheduling
- Being able to take Driver Education during the traditional school day enables our students to participate in a variety of after-school activities without Driver Education conflicts.
- Because of the time commitment, we are limited to 6 to 8 student drivers each session. Knowing most students want to get their license at the earliest possible date, we will make every effort to place your student in the session that best aligns with their birthday.
How to Register
To register your child for Drivers Education, please email Deanne Hayes. Please include your child’s name, year in school, and their date of birth. From that information, we will construct a schedule for the upcoming school year.
