William Floyd High School offers a driver education program to eligible William Floyd students. In order to be eligible, the student must be at least 16 years old and be in possession of a valid learner’s permit or junior license. All students are chosen by date of birth not “first-come, first served.” Students will attend class for a total of three (3) hours per week (90 minutes of lecture, 90 minutes in car). Students must attend every scheduled session in order to meet the attendance requirements as mandated by the NYS Department of Motor Vehicles, in cooperation with the NYS Department of Education. It is the student’s responsibility to notify the driver education office to arrange a make-up class. Any student with three (3) or more absences with makeups will be dropped. Upon successful completion of the course the student will be issued a certificate of completion (MV-285). The MV-285 is needed for students to obtain a class D license on the students 17th birthday, along with a reduction in car insurance.
The completed application and consent form must be signed by a parent/guardian. A parent/guardian signature acknowledges that the student/parent/guardian is aware of the attendance requirements and responsibilities.
Please return the parent consent form and the application only (no payments) to the driver education office in the William Floyd School District (District Office), 240 Mastic Beach Road, Mastic Beach, NY 11951 by 3 pm on June 14th.
