HANC’s Department of Driver Education is an accredited division, at the high school level, of the Hebrew Academy of Nassau County. Our course in Driver Education is certified by the New York State Department of Education, and taught in accordance with the standards set by the Department of Education and the Motor Vehicle Bureau.
HANC’s Driver Education program is offered at both our Uniondale (across from Hofstra University) and Plainview Campuses
All instructors are trained specialists in Driver Education. Each is also an accredited secondary school teacher, licensed by the State to teach Driver Education.
The curriculum has been designed to integrate the theoretical and practical aspects of driving. Weekly classes in theory are taught in conjunction with the in-car training program. All automobiles are late model dual controlled vehicles.
Each student’s program is carefully arranged in order to avoid any conflict with other school obligations.
The duration of the program is 16 weeks, with new classes scheduled to begin each September and February at both our Uniondale and Plainview Campuses. In addition, a Driver Education program is conducted at our Plainview Campus on weekdays during the summer months.
The Driver Education program is open to all students who will have reached their sixteenth birthday by the beginning of the course. In order to be considered for this course each student must be given permission to enroll by a parent or legal guardian.
Senior driver’s license privileges will be granted, at age seventeen, to all students who have successfully completed this program and who have passed the Motor Vehicle Bureau road test.
