Good news! We will be continuing Traffic Safety at Liberty in the 2018-19 school year! I (Mr. Thruelsen) will still be doing the behind-the-wheel instruction, but the classroom part of the course will be taught by Mr. Norm Fuller, who is transferring from the Skyline High School program to Liberty. Mr. Fuller has taught Traffic Safety for almost 20 years and is looking forward to working with new drivers at Liberty. You can contact me, Mr. Thruelsen, for information. The course application, class schedule, and other important information for the 2018-19 year has been posted.
Click on the small "Traffic Safety" link above (next to the Tree) to see the classroom schedule, course application, Course Information Packet, and any class handouts or files for the 2018-2019 school year.
1) In the application you can find information on program costs, hours in the classroom and hours in the car.
2) Please carefully read the very important Behind-the-Wheel information, as it outlines expectations of parents' involvement in their child's driving education.
3) Our class schedule is posted with tentative dates for the Fall session. Occasionally, there will be minor changes as we go along.
The classes are first-come, first-served. Because we only have two driving instructors, we must close enrollment at 10 students. Student can enroll ahead of time for any class. They must be 15 years old at the time the class begins to enroll. If they are enrolled in the class, a Department of Licensing waiver is available to enable the student to get their permit without initially taking a written test and without having to be 15 1/2 years old. The waiver is valid within 10 days of the first day of class. To register with the DOL, click on the small "Traffic Safety" link above (next to the tree) then open "How to get your Learner's Permit" file. That link on that page will take you directly to the DOL website form for registration. This must be done in order to get a Learner's Permit.
*New this year: Since our school day ends later this year and traffic has become so heavy, it is not possible to complete drives and avoid traffic jams before 4 PM. Therefore, most of our drives will be on Saturdays or Sundays. If your student cannot drive for two hours on weekends, then this is not the program for you.
**Also new this year: We get out of school later so the classes run from 3:05 to 5:05 PM, Tuesdays and Thursdays.
