Driver Education for students and the community
St. Mary’s High School offers a Driver Education Program that is open to students from local high schools as well as those from St. Mary’s High School. Working with Buffalo Driving School, a company that has over 50 years of experience, the Driver Education Program is offered three times throughout the year: spring, summer, and fall.
The fall 2019 session will begin on September 16, 2019, and continue through January 18, 2020.
The New York State Department of Education requires that each student attend 24-hours of classroom instruction, which are held on Thursday afternoons. Also, the students must also attend 24-hours of in-car instruction. One-and-a-half hour driving labs are available at various times in the vehicles. Students select the schedule that works best for them. Completion of the course also satisfies the 20-hour graduated license requirement.
Benefits of the Course:
- Enhanced learning experience with qualified instructors
- Satisfies New York State mandated requirements for new drivers
- Substantial premium reduction from auto insurance companies
- Ability to drive past 9 PM upon turning 17 (as opposed to 18)
The cost for the program is $525 per student, made payable and sent to:
