    Attention Current Driver Ed Students @ RCK: there will be NO LECTURE CLASS ON TUESDAY, December 12th. The class that will be held in its place will be on FRIDAY, DECEMBER 1st.  This is one of the 16 required lecture classes. The lecture class time is 2:30 pm-4:00 pm and class is being held in room 191. For students who drive on Fridays, the driving sessions should start 30 minutes later than your regularly scheduled time. However, please confirm this with your driving instructor to verify.

    Attention Current Driver Ed Students @ JJ: there is a mandatory lecture class on Friday, November 17th. This is one of the 16 required lecture classes. This class is being held because we cannot hold class on Wednesday, 11/22. The lecture class times are 2:30-4:00 pm and 4:00-5:30 pm. You should attend at your regularly scheduled lecture time. (i.e., if you usually attend the 4:00 pm lecture on Wednesdays, you should attend the 4:00 pm lecture on Friday, 11/17.)

    Students who drive on Fridays can switch classes if their regularly scheduled lecture time interferes with their driving time. (i.e., if you drive on Fridays @ 2:30 pm, but usually attend the 2:30-4:00 pm lecture on Wednesdays, you should instead attend the 4:00 pm lecture after your driving lesson on Friday, 11/17.)

    Registration for the FALL 2023 DRIVER ED PROGRAM is now closed. The program is full and there are no remaining spots. Please check back in early/mid December for information on the Winter/Spring program. That program will run from early February through early June and registration should open up sometime in December.
