Aloha students, are you hoping to get your driver’s license soon? The Pahoa Drivers Education Program is accepting registration for the spring semester classes. We are hoping to have enough students turn in applications before we leave for Winter break so that we can start in mid-January 2019. Applications will be accepted if you do not have a Driver’s permit at this point. However, you will need to pass the driver’s permit exam before the hands-on driving lessons of the course - winter break is a great time to go and take learner's test! Pick up a application today from Mrs. Iaukea in room H103.
Students who have their driving permit may register for the course to be taught over the Christmas break until December 9. The cost for both the classroom session and the behind-the wheel sessions is only $10 which can be paid at the mandatory parent meeting which will be held in December. New drivers will be taught all of the new rules and laws of the highway system as well as learn about the impacts on the driving experience of all new automotive technologies. Classes will be two hours long and the driving lessons will be three hours long with two partners. The total number of students per class is limited to those who are committed to make all classes and driving lessons; no absences allowed.
See Mrs. Rodgers to pick up a registration form.
Driver’s Education Instruction, Mrs. River Rodgers, who has taught Driver’s Education at Kea’au High School for 10 years, is here at PHIS to offer students with valid learners permit the state and national curriculum for learning the proper, safe and legal ways to share the road with other roadway users. There will be a class held during the summer. Registration forms are available at the PHIS’ front office or in Mrs. Rodger’s classroom H201. Every student must complete 37 hours of class time and 18 hours of driving or observing time in order to receive the certificate needed to take the DMV Road Test. If you have questions, please email Mrs. Rodgers at firstname.lastname@example.org
Mrs. Rogers is now accepting student registrations for the summer class of drivers' education. If you currently have your permit, you can sign up immediately; if you get your permit before May 15th you can get the registration form to be ready. Twenty to thirty students per class so save your space by turning in the registration form along with the $10 fee and a copy of your permit as soon as possible. Class schedule available after May 23, 2016. H201 during recesses or after school only please.
Starting in March, students with a valid permit can sign up for Driver's Education classes with Mrs. Rogers in H201.
The first classes will run through Spring Break and another class will start in May and finish in June, 2016. Classroom sessions require 36 hours and the behind-the-wheel requires 12-18 hours depending on the size of the group. After completion of these two sessions, students will receive two certificates which allow them to take the road test for their graduated license. This license is replaced with the regular driving license with six months of incident-free driving or student reaches age 18. Safe driving begins with a thorough understanding of the traffic safety systems in place and the responsibilities of driving. Classes cover everything from basic driving skills to trailering and sharing the road with other large or small vehicles.
Enroll your student by having the student pickup a registration form from Mrs. Rogers. Deadline for May classes is April 30, 2016.
