Classes Ages 15-20
Workforce Essentials provides certified Drivers Ed Classes for drivers ages 15-20. The program consists of 30 hours of classroom instruction and six hours of behind-the-wheel drive time. Students will attend the classroom instruction either over four consecutive Saturdays or four weekdays during one week – school schedules permitting. Behind-the-wheel drive time is scheduled separately and will occur outside of the classroom hours.
As of January 15, 2018, the Department of Safety and Homeland Security has changed their policy of allowing third party testers to administer the permit (knowledge) test. This means that no permit tests will be given at Workforce Essentials; all drivers will be required to take the knowledge test at one of Tennessee’s 44 Driver Services Centers located throughout the state.
Please call our administrative office @ 1.800.865.0981 with any questions. Thank you!
Classes are held at several convenient Tennessee locations.
We also offer private classes for groups. Call and speak to one of our representatives for more information. 1-800-865-0981
