According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, teenage drivers have the highest annual crash and traffic violation rates of any age group. Western Nevada College is offering four upcoming classes that will help new drivers remain safe when they're behind the wheel. Driver Education (CMSV 181C), a non-credit course which meets the requirements for a Nevada driver's license, will meet three times in Carson City and for the first time in Silver Springs.
The first Carson City course meets Saturdays, Nov. 17-Dec. 15, 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Silver Stage High School will be the site for the Silver Springs class on Saturdays, Nov. 17-Dec. 15, 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Both classes will skip Thanksgiving weekend. Upcoming winter break classes will meet in Carson City Wednesday-Saturday, Dec. 26-29 and Jan. 2-6, 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
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.
