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 program will run March 13, 2018 - May 17, 2018, and the cost for this program is $520.  The classes take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4:30 pm - 7:30 pm, with the classroom portion from 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm and in the driving portion from 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm.  Please download and fill out the forms attached below and return them to St. Mary's High School (142 Laverack Ave, Lancaster, NY 14086).
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.
Failure to meet the 24 hours of classroom training and 24 hours of in-car training will result in failure and denial issuance of an MV-285 (Student Certificate of Completion).  Make-up sessions will be available (May 22 and 24, 2018) for students that have up to two absences.  More than two absences will result in dismissal from the program and refunds will not be issued. 
For questions regarding this program, call St. Mary's High School at 716-683-4824.
Also, St. Mary's will be offering the 5-Hour Driving Classes through their partnership with AAA.  The dates for those classes can be found on AAA's website here.
