Learning to drive is a major milestone in a teenager's life. It's important for young or inexperienced drivers to learn safe driving techniques. There are four different ways Joshua’s Law can be satisfied for teenagers to meet the requirements for a Class D license. The program offered by Wiregrass meets the option that includes 30 hours of classroom instruction and 6 additional hours of drive time with an instructor. Most insurance companies also give a reduction (approx. 10%) on insurance premiums upon successful completion. Wiregrass provides a (DDS approved) Driver’s Education program in cooperation with the Georgia Driver’s Education Commission (GDEC).
Participants must be between 15 and 17 years of age and possess a Learner's Permit. Participants must attend all class dates for the full class periods. They must also complete all six (6) hours of behind-the-wheel driving.
Cost for the course is $350.

Beginning in January of 2017, the Georgia Driver’s Education Commission will begin a new scholarship program in which students may apply online for a driver’s education grant scholarship. The student will need to go to https://georgiadrivers.ga.gov to apply for the scholarship directly from the Georgia Driver’s Education Commission through an online application system. The Georgia Driver’s Education Grant Scholarship Program Eligibility Criteria can also be found on this website. Upon award of the scholarship, students will be provided with a redemption code and may choose a course provider from a list of authorized driver training schools to redeem the grant scholarship. Wiregrass Georgia Technical College is an authorized training provider under the scholarship program. The driver training school will redeem their grant scholarship through an online portal. Once the student has completed the driver’s education course, the course provider will upload a copy of the student’s certificate of completion through an online portal and request reimbursement for the student’s driver’s education course fee. Please note: Georgia Driver’s Education Scholarships are NOT awarded by Wiregrass Georgia Technical College. Therefore, we will not be able to check application status nor answer questions about the process nor status of scholarships. Any scholarship inquiries will need to be directed to the Georgia Driver’s Education Commission. The Georgia Driver's Education Commission is scheduled to go live with the new Georgia Driver's Education Grant Scholarship Program on Wednesday, March 1, 2017.
