CASH or MONEY ORDERS ONLY
Made out to Wareham High School
Books Classes a total of 30 hours Minimum Age is 15 years 9 months Classes are run in groups of ten sessions. Students must fully attend all sessions and successfully complete the components of each session. Individual class sessions will/may consist of students completing book work with worksheets. Students will be involved in class discussion, watching a related video/DVDs, teacher lectures and note taking, as well as a post test of that day’s key points. Students are required to arrive at class on time, prepared to work. All students are to print and sign their name on the class sign-in sheet. Student are expected to show responsible behavior during class time. Failure to do so shows immature attitude towards driving and they will be removed from the program. Any tardiness will be considered an absent class. Students who are absent can make up the class by attending the same class the next time it is offered. Example : if someone was to be absent during class #3 they would need to make up class #3. Note: we typically offer 4 to 5 courses a year. It could be 2-3 month before the class you need will be offered again. Once all ten classes are finished, students will be require to take and pass a 50 question final exam provided by the RMV.

Driving Hours
Driving hours total of 12 hours Observation hours total of 6 hours Driving hours are offered throughout the year during after school hours and school vacation. Student should be prepared to be in the car for 30 min before or 30 min after their schedule driving hour. Students must have their permit, proper eyewear if necessary, and appropriate footwear, or they will not be allowed to drive. Students are not obligated to do driving hours with us. They may request a letter stating that they have successfully completed the book course part of the program and do driving hour with a local driving school. Due to insurance reasons we can only drive students who have taken the book class with us. Hours are available on a first come first serve basis. In the past we have had a backup of two months in scheduling driving hours. Our suggestion for scheduling hours would be that student should have logged 10-15 hours with parent or guardian before driving with us. Students should spread the next 10-12 hours of driving thought-out the next 5 months of having their permit. During this time the parent or guardian should easily be able to log the remaining hours. No students are allowed to be in the car for longer than 2 hour in any one day by law. If a student was to be driving during that entire time, they will need to do a longer observation time when they are in the car again.
