Registrations being accepted for Driver Education classes

Tuesday, June 15, 2021

North Platte Community College's Business and Community Education department is now accepting registrations for Driver Education classes in July. 

Classes are open to entry level drivers ages 14-17 and are scheduled for Monday through Friday, July 19-23. 

There are two sessions per day: 8 a.m. to noon and 1-5 p.m. One session is for classroom instruction, and the other is to practice driving. Students can pick which one they do first. 

The course consists of 20 hours in the classroom and five hours of drive time as required by the Nebraska Department of Motor Vehicles. 

Classes will be based out of Room 105 in the W.W. Wood Building on the North Platte Community College North Campus, 1101 Halligan Drive, North Platte. 

Instruction will be provided on driver awareness, motor vehicle operation, rules of the road and basic traffic laws. 

Those who successfully complete the program will receive a drive test waiver. Students must already have a learner's permit, attend all sessions and meet all drive requirements in order to obtain the waiver.

The fee is $235, which includes the cost of a book. 

Those interested in registering can do so online at, by calling (308) 535-3678 or emailing
