    Welcome to the new 2020 edition of Mill Creek Driver’s Education 

      

    Each assignment is expected to be completed and turned in or submitted to Google Classroom. The state has requirements and we have set this up each day to meet the daily requirements. I will take roll at 3pm each day we will start the Zoom session. Class notes and materials will be organized in modules for each day. There are quizzes and tests that you are required to pass with a 70, and you are able to use class resources and notes for these tests. If not you do not pass then you will have to take them again. The class will last 10 days and each day’s assignments will be graded before the next class so we can go over everything together. Day 10 is the Final Review and Final. You can use all of your resources on the Final, so please be prepared and have them available.  

     

  • Joshua's Law

    WHY TAKE DRIVER'S EDUCATION?
    Every year 1 out of every 9 licensed drivers will have a collision. In a collaborative effort to ensure that new drivers are well educated and well prepared, educators, students and parents are supporting the step-by-step experience building process in becoming safe drivers. One step of that process is driver education.

    In addition to basic driving skills, students discuss the effects of alcohol and drugs on drivers, distractions while driving, assessing and managing driving risk and consequences of choices you make as a driver and passenger.

    All these skills and knowledge are reinforced with the actual driving time, observations and use of simulators.  Driver education is not just the business of driving a car, but how to be a safe and responsible driver that is capable of making life saving decisions.

    The Gwinnett programs include:

    • 30 hours of classroom instruction
    • 6 hours of driving time
    • 6 hours of observation

    During the twelve hours of driving and observation, the instructor documents exactly the experience each student receives on various highways, interstate, parking etc.

    JOSHUA'S LAW
    In 2005 the General Assembly passed Senate 226 also known as Joshua's Law.  Effective January 1, 2007 all 16 year olds that apply for a class D license must complete an approved driver education course and 40 hours of supervised driving with 6 of those hours at night. If this requirement is not met, the student must wait until he or she is 17 years old.

    The new driving laws encourage parents to take an active role in their children's driver education.
