North Platte Community College will offer a Driver Education course July 24-28. Participants will attend a classroom session from 8 a.m. to noon every morning, then will practice driving in the afternoons.
The program is open to students as young as 14 who have a learner's permit. It is approved by the Nebraska Department of Motor Vehicles and consists of 20 hours of class time and five hours of drive time.
Those who successfully complete the program will receive a waiver, enabling them to skip both the written test and the drive test when applying for a license. Discounts on car insurance may also apply, depending on the policy.
A $235 course fee, which covers the cost of a required textbook, must be paid in advance. Payments will not be accepted at the door. The deadline to register is July 17. Registration can be done online at https://register.centerforenterprise.com.
Will Winchester, Dennis Fornander, Janet Henne, Duane Skiles and Bob Zohner will serve as the instructors for the program.
