Driver’s education at LCCC begins in March

CHEYENNE, WYO. — Registration is now open for the driver's education program at Laramie County Community College.

These classes complete the Department of Education's required 30 hours of classroom time, six hours of in-car instruction, and six hours of observation. Upon completion, students will receive their driver's education certificate and the Alive at 25 certificate.

During the three-week program, students will work with lead instructor Jim Wollack who has 39 years of law enforcement experience (including 23 as a police driving instructor). The teaching team brings seven drivers with backgrounds in law enforcement, education and transportation, giving students a comprehensive instruction of real-life scenarios and defensive driving strategies.

Cheyenne classes will take place Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday mornings, March 13-31 or May 1-19. Classes in Pine Bluffs will be held Tuesday, Friday and Saturday mornings, April 10- 21.

Students will need to have obtained their official driver's permit and provide a vehicle for the driving portion of the class. Driving and observations times are flexible and completed around the student's schedule, though a parent or guardian is asked to attend the first 30 minutes of the first class to ensure the drive times the student chooses are acceptable.

To register for the class or for more information including class fees, contact LCCC's Life Enrichment office at 307-778-1236 or lifeenrichmentFREELARAMIE.
