Driver education promotes and teaches safe driving attitudes, defensive driving skills, and respect for the rules of the road. It prepares students for the Registry of Motor Vehicles license exam; and it strives to prevent or reduce accidents and fatalities that involve young drivers. Driver Education at Concord‐Carlisle High School includes:
30 classroom hours (must be at least 15 years and 9 months of age),
12 hours of behind‐the‐wheel instruction,
6 hours of in‐car observation, and
one 2-hour parent/guardian class, attended by at least one parent (certificate valid for 5 years).
Parents/guardians are responsible for an additional 40+ hours of on‐theroad practice. Students should complete the program within one year.
Classroom materials are supplied: Also recommended: RMV Driver’s Manual – Click here to download. Copies are sold at RMV offices ($5) or Community Education ($4).
Elective Credit: CCHS students may earn one elective credit for completion of the classroom program.
Meets every day December 26th- December 30th
Parent Class: We strongly encourage parents to attend the RMV‐mandated parent class before their child begins the Drivers Education program or early in the program, as we will review our program’s policies, procedures, and the expectations of the parents and students. Parent meetings are FREE for parents of students in the CCHS Drivers Education Program.
