Classroom Driver Education is the first phase of Driver Safety Education. Driver Education enrollment is determined by age. Students must meet attendance requirements and successfully complete the classroom phase to be eligible for the Behind-the-Wheel phase.
Behind-the-Wheel training is available to students who have successfully completed the classroom phase of Driver Education. Students living within the Peoria Public School District 150 must complete both phases of Driver Education at Peoria Notre Dame or at a commercial school. All other students may take the Behind-the-Wheel phase of Driver Education at Peoria Notre Dame, or at the student’s home public school district, or at state approved commercial driving schools during the school year or during summer school.
Behind-the-Wheel instruction at Peoria Notre Dame is offered on a quarterly basis during the school year and during summer school. Students are scheduled for Behind-the-Wheel according to age. No Behind-the-Wheel instruction is given during the school day; times for such instruction are before or after school, or on Saturdays. Behind-the-Wheel instruction is controlled and conducted by Peoria Public School District 150. Peoria Public School District 150 sets the fee for the Behind-the-Wheel phase of instruction. Students wishing to take either classroom or Behind-the-Wheel, or both phases, at a public school district other than District 150, are responsible to contact the Driver Education instructor at their home public school.
