Driver Education for students and the community
St. Mary's Partners with AAA of Central and Western New York
St. Mary's High School is pleased to announce it has partnered with The AAA of Central and Western New York to offer Driver Education classes to its students and any members of the community. There are several benefits related to this partnership, including offering several 5-Hour Pre-Licensing classes and several 6-Hour Points/Insurance Reduction classes during Winter and Spring 2018, in addition to the Spring 2018 Drivers Education Program.
The NYS Education Department requires that each student attend 24 hours of classroom training and 24 hours of in car training as part of its Drivers Education training prior to being issued an MV-285 (Student Certificate of Completion). 90-minute classroom and in-car sessions are now being offered for the Spring 2018 Program.
St. Mary's is currently working through its change from another driving school to AAA of Central and Western New York with New York State. As of today, we are not yet authorized to offer this 48-hour course but expect to receive approval prior to March 13th. In the event that we do not have approval by March 13th, we will have no choice but to cancel this session and refund any funds received. Please check this site frequently for updates on this issue.
As of April 23, 2018, St. Mary's is continuing to work with New York State on approval to offer this 48-hour course. As of now, we do not have this approval, and as a result, we cannot offer the course to start the summer. We hope to be able to offer this 48-hour course later this summer. Please check this page periodically for updates.
