Driver's Education Course Offered at Blackville School

First Rate Driver, provider of driver training services, will be offering a four week driver’s education course at Blackville School beginning Tuesday, September 19.

This is a class for Blackville School students only and will be conducted at the school. The course is held every Tuesday and Thursday evening over a four week period. Class times are from 3:45 pm to 7:15 pm on each evening. A break will be provided during the evening in order to allow students time for something to eat.

In-car instruction will start once the classroom training has been completed provided the student has their class 7-1 license (beginners license/permit). If the student does not have their beginners license/permit upon completion of the classroom training, the driving time can begin once the student has obtained this license. There are 11 hours of in-car instruction to be completed by each student.

Students must be 16 years old by November 19 to start training. Any student looking to take the Driver’s Education Course MUST register with the company by Wednesday, September 13.

The course is $675 and will be held on September 19, 21, 26 & 28, and on October 3, 5, 10 & 12.
