    The next session of Driver’s Education will begin on Thursday October 14th at 6:30pm. Classes will be held virtually again this fall. 


    The Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) awards Junior Operator Licenses to drivers between the ages of 16 ½ and 18.

    To obtain a Junior Operator License, teens have to graduate from a state-approved driver’s education school with:

                12 hours of Driving with a Driver’s Ed instructor.

                6 hours of Observation with a Driver’s Ed instructor.

                40 hours of documented driving time with a parent.

                30 hours of Classroom Training.

    Students must be at least 15 years and 9 months at the start of classroom training. Students must be born before January 14, 2006. No exceptions. If they were born after this date they will have to wait for the next class session.

    There is a mandatory 2 hour class for parents/guardians. Several parent/guardian classes are held throughout the year. Notice of these meetings is embedded in the classroom paperwork.

    Students are able to obtain a driver’s permit at the age of 16. For information on how to obtain a permit for your student, please visit: www.mass.gov/rmv.

    Registration for the fall class will go live tomorrow morning (9/29) at 9:00am. 


    To register for the Mandatory Parent/Guardian Class please follow the link below. This is how you will receive the link to this virtual class. Parents/Guardians must attend this class before their student driver can get behind the wheel. This class is offered at the beginning of each class session (Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer). 


    If you have attended this course within the last 5 years for another one of your student drivers you will be exempt but please communicate with us as it is a requirement in order for your student to get certified.
