• Driver Education Announcements - FALL 2020

    9/14/20 - Program III is full and registration is closed.
    If you would like to be put on a waitlist for a potential Program IV, which would likely run between Thanksgiving and Christmas, please contact our office via phone, 298-5000, ext. 40130, or through email, continuing.ed@wcsdny.org. If we receive enough interest, we will run a fourth program.
    We are happy to announce that we will be running a Driver Education program this fall! Because of many of the NYS and WCSD restrictions during this time period, the program will look very different from how the program has been run in the past. It is IMPERATIVE that you read ALL of the documentation on this web page, as well as the program description links to the left and, should you decide to register for the program, all the registration prompts.
    Some fall program highlights:
    • We will be offering 2 programs this fall. These programs have different costs depending upon whether you choose the option with 3 students per car or 4 students per car. For more explanation on this please click here American Driving Academy Program Description

    • We will be taking all safety measures to keep everyone in the car safe and healthy. Please click here to read about the safety precautions being taken for the in-car portion of the program American Driving Academy Covid-19 Precautions

    • Students will now select their in-car time when completing the registration application. There are a VERY LIMITED NUMBER of spaces available per time slot. As each time slot fills up, it will no longer be avaiable to select, so if you go to register for a time slot, and the sytem does not allow you to select it, it means it already full and no longer available.

    • If you would like to participate in the Driver Ed program, but none of the slots available work with your schedule, please contact the Driver Ed office at 298-5000, ext. 40137 to be put on a wait list. If demand warrants it, we may be able to run a third session later in the fall.

    • Lectures will all be done virtually, online through Google classroom. Students will be required to sign in to Google classroom TWICE A WEEK to read lecture material, watch any video links and get assignments. All assignments must be handed in by the next class. Failure to do so could result in dismissal from the program.
