Transportation Safety

Driver Education

We believe that Driver Education is the most important course a Student will ever take because it provides them with the foundation on which to build their knowledge and skills for safe and efficient driving for the rest of their lives.  As a result, our classes are small (limited to no more than 24 students), and focus on the basics of driving skills, safety, attitudes, and behaviors.

Our course consists of 22 hours of classroom study, 4 hours of Range activities, 4 hours of Simulation, and 2.5 hours of On-Street driving.  Passing the course results in waiver of the written and drive test at the Nebraska DMV and a Certificate of Completion which can be used for insurance purposes. 

Classes are taught throughout Nebraska and utilize the Ron and Carol Cope Nebraska Center for Safety Education and Research – one of only 3 full-sized driving ranges in the Midwest. 

Registration Information:

  • Payment plans are available upon request.  For more information, contact our office.

  • Students are provided up to 3 hours of on-street driving time. Students requiring more than 3 hours of driving will be charged $50 per hour. If a student schedules a time to drive and is not present for the lesson, that lesson will be rescheduled and an additional fee will be assessed.
