January Drivers Ed courses announced for Chattanooga residents

Posted:

CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) - Two Driver Education classes have been announced for January 2-5, 2013, with the winter break giving young Chattanoogans (age 15-22) the chance to learn life-saving skills at a huge savings.  The classes will be at the Shepherd Community Center (near Highway 153 and Lee Highway) and the South Chattanooga Community Center (near St. Elmo and South Broad Street).

The Traffic Engineering Division has combined resources with Parks and Recreation and the Chattanooga Police Department to establish a city-sponsored drivers education program which makes professional defensive driving instruction available at low cost to city residents between the ages of fifteen and twenty-two. 

Hamans New Drivers has contracted with the City to provide its basic five week defensive driving course (regularly $419) to eligible City residents for $350. Upon application, the student/parent(s) pay a $50 non-refundable enrollment fee. Once the student has successfully completed the course, the city pays the $300 balance directly to the driving school.

The funding is supplied through revenue generated by the photo enforcement program. Those monies have been earmarked for traffic safety initiatives.

Spaces in these courses are extremely limited, and early application is recommended:

Shepherd Community Center, 2124 Shepherd Road
January 2, 3, 4 & 5; 2013  (Wednesday through Saturday)  
9:00 until 4:45 each day

South Chattanooga Community Center, 1151 West 40th Street
January 2, 3, 4 & 5; 2013  (Wednesday through Saturday)  
9:00 until 4:45 each day

For more information, please call the Drivers Education information line at 423-643-7011 or call 311.
