Driver Education Programs

School districts may provide a driver education program as per 24 P.S. § 15-1519 et seq. of the Public School Code of 1949. The Pennsylvania Department of Education adopted Content and Performance Expectations for Driver Education (PDF) in the Fall of 2003. For school districts offering Driver Education, the Content and Performance Expectations describe what students should know and be able to do at the end of the thirty-hour classroom theory and the six-hour behind-the-wheel instructional program. Attainment of these expectations will allow students to safely use the Highway Transportation System with greater confidence and higher skill levels.
