Driver Education Mission Statement

The Joliet Township High School Driver Education is a three-phase program designed to help novice drivers develop the knowledge, skills, and attitude necessary to become safe, low-risk, responsible drivers.

Course Description

Students will receive safe instruction in the safe operation of motor vehicles, rules of the road, and the laws of the State relating to motor vehicles. The course meets the legal requirements of the State in preparing students to become safe and efficient users of the highway transportation system.

Driver Education is taught in three phases:

  1. Classroom Instruction (30 hours)
  2. Simulation
  3. Behind the Wheel Driving (6 hours)

Parents are responsible for a minimum of 50 hours of supervised driving (of which 10 hours must be night driving) with their son/daughter and to record this on a document to be turned in when the student obtains his/her license. To successfully complete the course, students must attend all course hours.
