Lincoln-Way District 210 Driver Education Program is hosting an information meeting for parents about the new permit process and licensing laws for teens in the State of Illinois.
“This is important information for parents of future drivers, to understand that the permit process and licensing procedure for teens has changed,” stated Dr. Susan Anstett, Drivers Ed, P.E. and Heath department chair for Lincoln-Way East.
This popular informative meeting is being held at 6:00 pm at each of the four high schools on:
• Monday, February 25, in the Lincoln-Way Central Auditorium
• Tuesday, February 26 in the Lincoln-Way East Auditorium
• Wednesday, February 27, in the Lincoln-Way West Auditorium
• Wednesday, March 6, in the Lincoln-Way North Auditorium
Parents are welcome to attend at the location that best fits their schedule; the information presented will be the same at all four high schools.
“In an effort to ensure that students receive all phases of the Lincoln-Way District 210 Driver Education Curriculum in a timely fashion, we have revised the classroom curriculum of driver education,” noted Jay Johnson, District 210 Driver Education Supervisor.
The classroom curriculum will begin in March of the freshman year and be continued, until completed, prior to the beginning of the junior year. Freshman students will participate in the new permit application phase of the curriculum during a portion of their Physical Education, Health or ROTC class in March. Upon successful completion of this portion of the curriculum, and on or after their 15th birthday, students will be eligible to take their completed application to the Department of Motor Vehicles to apply for a driving permit.
