Driver Education

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 spring 2019 session will begin tentatively on February 21, 2019, and continue through June 12, 2019.

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.

The cost for the program is $525 per student. Registration materials are available below.

Questions regarding the program may be directed to Christopher Hoffman at or by calling the school at 716-683-4824.
