Driver Education

New drivers can prepare for the challenges of driving (and driver license testing) in the Western Nevada College Driver’s Education Program. This non-credit course meets 4 days for 30 total hours of classroom training, and is open to students age 15 and older.

WNC’s Driver Education Program meets the Department of Motor Vehicles’ training requirements to obtain a Nevada driver’s license. The course uses lectures, videos and interactive activities to teach Nevada driving regulations, basic vehicle control, and driving maneuvers in various environments and situations. The comprehensive course also discusses the added challenges of inexperience. Guest speakers bring a wealth of knowledge in the areas of traffic safety, car maintenance and insurance.

Students must be at least 15 years of age on the last day of class to be eligible to take the course. Most insurance companies will provide students with a discount for taking a 30-hour driver education course. Students should check with their insurance provider to clarify their individual policy.

A half-hour lunch break is provided during the day. Students must bring their lunch as college food services are not available.

Cost $100.

Please Note: This is a non-refundable class and payment is due at time of registration.
