  • Drivers Ed clipart

    State law requires that all 14 1⁄2 to 15 1⁄2 year-olds take a 30-hour driver’s education course and pass a permit test to get their driver’s permit.


    Why not enroll in our online course and help raise funds for our school?


    STERLING HIGH SCH00L is excited to announce a new partnership with DriveSafe Driving Schools!


    Get started on your road to driving with our affordable Online Driver’s Ed Course, and raise funds for our school at the same time! Our approved course is 100% online and is self-paced.


    View it on any device, anytime. The course has easy-to-follow lessons and is fully interactive with animations, games, and videos.

    For more information please contact the counseling office at SHS at 522-2944. Credit will not be awarded for this class. We are partnering with DriveSafe Driving Schools to offer driver's ed. This class will not show up on the student's transcript. Once the student completes the online program, they do earn a certificate. If they bring that certificate to the counseling office, we can make a copy and keep that copy on file. The cost of this program is $55.
