Summer School Drivers Ed Course

THIS CLASS IS FULL FOR THE 2021 SUMMER AND ALREADY HAS A FULL WAITLIST. No additional students can register at this time.

The program consists of classroom instruction and "behind the wheel" driving with an instructor and runs fluidly through both semesters (details below).  The classroom phase will include basic information on Illinois traffic laws, the fundamentals of driving, decision making skills, alcohol and driving, insurance, and basic car maintenance.  Actual on-street driving consists of driving in a dual control car, enabling the student to experience actual driving conditions.

Summer School Driver Education admission priority will be given to the eligible public and parochial high school students living within District 99 boundaries.  Admissions will also be based on age.  Students must be at least 15 years of age by June 6, 2021. The registration fee for in district learners is $250.00 and $670 for out of district learners (addresses are verified by staff). The paperwork to obtain the permit will be sent to you in May. It is a state law that a student cannot have their permit more than 30 days before the class begins. 


Semester 1: June 7-10, 14-17, 21-23 (3-week block)

During this block, all students enrolled will be completing the classroom portion of the Drivers Education Credit during this time as well as some behind the wheel experience. Details to follow.

Semester 2: June 28- July 1, July 6-8, 12-15 (3-week block)

During this block, the teachers of the course will create a schedule for times that students need to be at Downers North in order to drive "behind the wheel" with them. That schedule will come out at another time. Students who are not driving on a given day are not expected to come to school.
