The 30-hour class combines lectures, class discussion, guest speakers, and films to cover Nevada driving regulations, basic vehicle control, and driving maneuvers in various environments and situations. The Nevada Public Agency Insurance Pool, the Public Agency Compensation Trust, and State Farm Insurance all support the course.
