USM Learn to Drive Program
Students must be at least 14-years-old and entering ninth grade in the fall to attend the class.
Topics include Mississippi traffic laws and regulations, drugs and driving, first-aid in case of an accident, vehicle maintenance, decision-making and seat belt education.
The behind-the-wheel phase begins with the elementary driving tasks of left and right turns on a driving range before moving to streets in residential areas. Eventually, more complex driving experiences take place on suburban roads, interstate highways and inner-city streets.
Those who complete the course successfully will earn one-half credit toward their high school graduation.
All instructors in the program hold a Mississippi teacher certification in driver education.
Course Fee: $275.00
Please bring the following to the first day of class:
- Verification of Attendance Form from the school which they are attending.
- Certified copy of their birth certificate. Photocopies are not acceptable.
- Original Social Security card. Photocopies are not acceptable.
- Completed application for learner’s permit/driver’s license. This form will be mailed once the registration fee has been received.
