Drivers education is not required in Pennsylvania to obtain a driving permit or license. However, some insurance companies offer a discount for those drivers who have completed a certified drivers education program.
Drivers education is a two-part program. The theory portion consists of 30 class hours of instruction. The supervised driving portion consists of six hours of actual behind-the-wheel practice. Upon completion of both parts of drivers education, students are issued a certificate stating that they have fulfilled the course requirements.
The Chester County Intermediate Unit provides Drivers Education courses and Kennett High School students may register for this course by completing a form available in the Main Office.
For more information, contact The Chester County Intermediate Unit at 484-237-5189. In the past classes have been conducted after school, in the evening and/or on Saturdays either at Kennett High School or at Avon Grove High School.
