Learning to drive is a major milestone in life. Young or inexperienced drivers need to learn safe driving techniques. The program offered by Savannah Technical College meets Joshua’s Law options that include 30 hours of classroom instruction and six additional hours of drive time with an instructor. Most insurance companies also give a reduction (approx. 10%) on insurance premiums upon successful completion.
Savannah Technical College provides a (DDS-approved) Driver’s Education program in cooperation with the Georgia Driver’s Education Commission (GDEC). Participants must attend all class dates for the full class periods. If seeking a certificate of completion for 30 hours of classroom and six hours of driving, participants must also complete all six (6) hours of behind-the-wheel driving.
The 30-hours of online classroom instruction is now available for virtual and independent study. The behind-the-wheel 6-hour training is available for one-on-one appointments. Each class consists of 9 total sessions with a make-up session scheduled at the end of each week. Students must attend the entire class to complete the 30-hour requirement.
