In compliance with NY State DMV, SUNY Ulster will be offering a hybrid version of the High School Driver Education program that will allow students to receive their MV-278, 5hr certificate and their MV-285 Certificate of Completion. As with SUNY Ulster’s previous Driver Education Program, these certificates entitle the driver to a senior license and eligibility for insurance reductions under some providers. This program will include remote lecture classes and parental driving supervision for the in-car training.
The drivers education lecture classes will run for 16 weeks and be delivered via a live Zoom class. Students are required to attend the live lectures during the scheduled dates and times and complete all the necessary course work. We are only accepting students from the following area high schools: Kingston,Highland, Marlboro, New Paltz, Onteora, Rondout Valley, Saugerties, and Woodstock Day School. There will be two lecture times available for registration and a maximum capacity of 25 students per program.
Due to restrictions brought on by COVID-19 we are unable to offer the traditional in-car training with an instructor. NY State DMV is allowing parents and guardians who have a valid driver license to supervise and confirm in-car driving for dependent children. SUNY Ulster will be providing a driving curriculum that outlines all of the training areas that should be reviewed and demonstrated by the students. This curriculum provides descriptions of all of the in-car learning objectives as well as links to support videos. In addition we will be hosting an online workshop centered around safety tips and working with student drivers.
There are two options for the lectures, Mondays from 3-4:30pm or Wednesdays from 3-4:30pm. Lectures are delivered via Zoom and the instructor will be providing the link information via email prior to the first day of class.
