The West Genesee Adult Education Department now offers the New York State Education Department approved Driver Education Program. Successful completion will earn the student a MV 285 (formally known as a “blue card”) and an insurance reduction certificate. The course will be offered four times each year in September, January, March, and each summer.

  • A New York State teacher certified in Driver’s Education will provide 24 hours of classroom instruction and the Able II Driving School will provide 24 hours of in-car instruction.
  • The combination of classroom and in-car instruction will run March 11 through May 10. (see details below)
  • Attendance is mandatory for all classroom and driving sessions.
  • Space is limited to 36 students. Admission to the Driver Education Program is on a first-come, first-served basis with receipt of the completed registration form (with parent’s signature) and $425 payment. Registration begins January 30 and ends March 1 or when the class is filled. This program will fill quickly, please register early.
  • Carefully consider student’s entire academic, sport, extracurricular, and work schedules before committing to this course. Typically, if your student is in a sport, he/she cannot also take Driver’s Ed.
