Course Guidelines and Requirements
Class Time You
are expected to take notes! Driver
education notebook or folder is recommended.
Lectures will complement the textbook material.
For each day of class you will be responsible for a chapter or an
assignment. Refer to assignment
sheet for each days assignment. If
you miss a class (for any reason), you will have a make-up assignment for that
class. Get make-up assignment from
your class instructor. It is your responsibility to get these make-up papers and to get them
done! When you miss class
you need to get notes from someone that was in class.
Notes will be very helpful to you!
Simulator You will
be assigned one hour a week for simulator. This
will be your scheduled simulator for the entire semester.
You need to make every effort not to miss your assigned time.
If you miss a simulator session, you must make it up!

Driving Time You
will be assigned a driving time that will meet once a week.

must have your instructor permit to drive no exceptions!
If you miss a drive, you will have to make it up!
Contact your driving instructor to do this.
Making up one drive for a semester is easy to make-up, the second
missed drive is tough to make-up, and the third
missed drive is virtually impossible to be made-up!
No one will be permitted to drive with a cast, sling, brace, or wrap on
right foot, either hand, either arm, neck, back, or shoulders.
