LISD offers a course in Driver Education for District teens. The course follows the Texas Education Agency's Driver Education curriculum and guidelines. The classroom phase meets for the state required 32 clock hours. The driving phase requires each student to have seven (7) hours of behind-the-wheel driving and seven (7) hours of observation. This will give a thorough overview of the skills needed to be a competent driver. However, many more hours of practice will be needed to help the student become a good driver. Parents will need to familiarize themselves with the TEA requirements for additional driving practice which is to be supervised and certified by the parent or legal guardian. For more information on these requirements please contact our office or the Texas Education Agency.
To be eligible for enrollment in a Driver Education course, the student must be at least 15 years of age on or before the first day of instruction, and in grades 9-12. The student must be able to meet school attendance requirements as specified by the Texas Education Agency. To obtain a driving permit, the student must present to the DPS an Attendance Verification Form obtained from the high school registrar. In addition, students must also present to the DPS proof of insurance, along with a valid, legal birth certificate and social security card. If your child does not have these documents you must acquire them before enrolling your child in the Driver Education class. Students must bring their original birth certificate and social security card with them the first day of class. Copies are not acceptable.
Driver Education classes have a limited enrollment. Enrollment is on a first come, first served basis. Classes are offered three (3) times a year. Classroom hours are 4:00 pm until 6:00 pm at Flower Mound HS, Hebron HS, Marcus HS and The Colony HS. LHS hours are 4:30 pm-6:30pm.
