Driver Education Permitting Process

    • At 14 years old, students are able to take the Secretary of State Written Permit Test. The Permit test is completed at Lake Park High School. Students will then complete the eye exam with the Driver Education Instructors at Lake Park.

    • When the student turns 15 years old, the Lake Park Instructors process the Permits at the Secretary of State’s Office.

    • After the permits are processed through the Secretary of State, students will receive an email informing them to pick up their permits from the Driver Education Instructor.  

    • Prior to the issuance of the permit, the students will be required to attend one lab session in the Driver Simulation classroom. The lab session will be completed during the student’s lunch hour. The lab sessions will last approximately 20 minutes.

    • During course selection, students will select Driver Education for their sophomore year.

    • Students may elect to take Driver Education during Summer School 2023, provided they are 15 years of age. Summer School has typically been taught during the month of June and the hours are 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM, Monday through Friday, with one day where the students have to stay until 1:00 PM to complete a Behind The Wheel Drive. Summer School fills up quickly. Students who have an early birthday usually are given priority. Summer School attendance is at a premium, and per the Secretary of State, students are only allowed TWO absences of instruction.

    • Students who take Driver Education during the academic school year will be assigned to the first or second semester. Students who are involved with after-school activities and athletics will be able to complete their Behind The Wheel Drives after school or on Saturdays.
