North Platte Community College will offer a driver education course July 23-27. Classes are from 8 a.m. to noon each day with driving sessions in the afternoon. The registration deadline is July 17.
Driver Education is open to students as young as 14 who have a learner’s permit. It is approved by the Nebraska Department of Motor Vehicles and consists of 20 hours of class time and five hours of drive time.
The instructors are Will Winchester, Tom Allberry, Dennis Fornander, Jeff and Janet Henne, Lynn Rinehart and Bob Zohner.
Those who successfully complete the program will receive a waiver, enabling them to skip both the written test and the drive test when applying for a license. Discounts on car insurance may also apply, depending on the policy.
A $235 course fee, which covers the cost of a required textbook, must be paid in advance. Payments will not be accepted at the door. Registration can be made online at www.mpcc.edu/bce.
