Drivers Education


Dear Parents or Guardians,


Please read this letter carefully. It will explain the policies regarding Registration for the SUMMER 2019 semester of Driver Education. Registration runs from Wednesday May 15, 2019 through Friday May 17, 2019 between 8 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Attached are the Summer Enrollment form and Code of Conduct form, as well as a schedule of all classes. Classes begin on Monday, July 1, 2019. Students will register for a 90-minute lecture class and 90-minute driving lesson which meet 2/3 days a week on Mon., Wed., alternating Friday OR Tues., Thurs., alternating Friday. The students will be at the high school for a total of 3 hours on the days they attend Drivers Ed. Please refer to the Summer Class Enrollment form for available days and times of lecture classes and driving lessons. Driving space is limited to four (4) students per car, therefore, scheduling flexibility may be required. The fee for Driver Education is $490.00. Registration procedures are as follows:

  1. Students that will be in their senior or junior year as of September 2019 can register on 5/15/19 through 5/17/19 between 8:00 am – 2:00 pm. Students will register by submitting a Summer Enrollment form, Code of Conduct form and payment of $490.00 to Ms. Marino in room #107 (attendance office). Payment must be a Money Order or check for $490.00, made payable to Connetquot CSD, memo student name/Driver Education. No cash is accepted. We recommend Money orders because there can be a delay when processing the checks. Students may register before they have a permit but must have their permit before the first day of class.
  2. Placement of driving and lecture classes will be by grade and then by the student’s birthday. On May 21, 2019, a class roster will be available outside Ms. Marino's office. It is very important when choosing your 1st 2nd and 3rd choice when registering that you consider all other commitments (Clubs, Jobs, Sports and Vacations)
  3. There is a mandatory orientation meeting on Tuesday, May 21, 2019 at 6:00 p.m. in the LGI. Both the student and parent must attend this meeting.


New York State Department of Education mandates that in order to qualify for a Certificate of Completion (MV-285) a student must:

  1. Be 16 years old and hold a valid Learner's Permit prior to the first day of class.
  2. Complete 24 hours in-car training with 6 hours of behind the wheel and 18 hours of observation. Please note that DMV requires students to complete 50 hours of supervised driving and submit an MV-262 form, signed by a parent or guardian attesting to the completed hours with 15 hours occurring after sunset, before a student may take their road test.
  3. Complete 24 hours of lecture classroom training and earn a grade of 65 or above for both portions of the course. There are no excused absences. All absences must be made up on the two make up days. An incomplete cannot be made up during the next semester without paying for the course again. Students involved with sports or other activities should carefully consider their schedule when choosing days and times of driving and lecture classes. Class withdrawals must be in writing one week before the first day of class in order to receive a refund. No refund will be given if the withdrawal is not in written form.


Thank you for your interest in the Connetquot High School Driver Education Program.
