Driver’s Education

The St. Johns County Tax Collector, in cooperation with the St. Johns County School District, will offer free Driver Education classes to all eligible high school students during the 2011-2012 school year. The classes will be available at Bartram Trail, Creekside, Menendez, Ponte Vedra, Nease, St. Augustine and St. Johns Technical High Schools.
The curriculum is designed to prepare students for obtaining a Learner License, which allows restricted driving privileges for one year. The classroom instruction will cover driving laws, rules, road signs and safety.
These classes will be taught by trained instructors at the high school where the student is enrolled. Each class will be limited to 50 students, and enrollment will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Classes will meet every school day from 8-9 a.m. throughout each of the scheduled sessions. Bus transportation will not be provided.
“We are extremely grateful to Dennis Hollingsworth and the St. Johns County Tax Collector’s Office for providing this opportunity for our students,” said Superintendent Joseph Joyner.
Students can register by clicking on the Driver Education Classes link available at the Tax Collector’s website at www.sjctax.us. Those wishing to attend must be at least 14 and half years old by the start of the first class. Students will be required to complete an online registration form with their name, address, date of birth, phone number, high school and requested class dates.
