Summer SOLE Driver's Education Program

What are the requirements for enrolling in Driver's Education?

  • Students must be at least 15 years old and have a learner's permit or operator's license when the session begins on June, 21st.

  • Space is limited to 16 student participants.

    • Preference will be given to seniors, then juniors, and then sophomores until the slots are filled.

  • Students must attend all scheduled sessions.

    • All absences must be pre-approved by the instructor.

    • Two absences will result in an automatic withdrawal from the course.

What does the Summer SOLE Driver's Education schedule entail?

Students will attend either a morning or afternoon session every Monday for course work. Students will sign up for a driving slot at the Monday session. This is mandatory.

Monday Session Times

  • Morning session: 8:00am-11:00am

  • Afternoon session: 12:00pm-3:00pm

Students will sign up each Monday for their weekly driving slot. There will be no one-on-one instruction. Students will be paired or grouped with a minimum of 2 and maximum of 4 students. There will be preferred student groups determined by location. This will allow students to be picked up and drive together (Hacker Valley, Webster Springs, Camden-on-Gauley, etc.). This will make travel arrangements easier for families.

Weekly Driving Slots

  • Tuesday 8:30-11:30 OR 12:00-3:30

  • Wednesday 8:30-11:30 OR 12:00-3:30

  • Thursday 8:30-11:30 OR 12:00-3:30

  • Friday 8:30-11:30 OR 12:00-3:30

Can I hold a summer job and still enroll in Summer SOLE Driver's Education?

Although there are specific requirements, listed on this page, that must be completed, we have tried our best to include flexibility so that students can work and participate in Summer SOLE Driver's Education. Students must attend either the morning or afternoon session on Monday of each week for the mandatory instruction and coursework. Students will choose one of the eight driving times available each week during the Monday session. Students do not have to choose the same driving slot time each week.

What does Summer SOLE Driver's Education coursework entail?

Course work will consist of, but is not limited to, the same standards for Driver's Education offered during the school year and includes:

  • Highway license requirements

  • Traffic laws

  • Responsible ownership

  • Driving procedures and maneuvers

  • Factors related to youthful driving

  • Physical and mental impairments

  • Other highway users

  • Different environments and conditions

Course work will include the instruction given during the Monday in-person sessions in combination with student work and assignments that must be completed outside of class.
