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, up to 3.5 hours of On-Street driving and 3.5 hours of observation. 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:

  • Each Student is required by the Nebraska DMV to have a valid Permit in order to enroll in this course.
  • To enroll in the course, complete the appropriate registration form found below then return it to the Nebraska Safety Center with payment.
  • We accept MasterCard, Visa, personal checks, or money orders, which must be sent to our office. The Classroom Instructor will NOT accept any form of payment.
  • If you pay by check, or money order, please make payment to “Nebraska Safety Center at UNK”. Payment plans are available upon request. Such plans require a $115 deposit prior to enrollment and payment in full prior to the issuance of the DMV waiver. Please contact the Nebraska Safety Center office for details.
  • Classes are limited and registration will be on a first-come, first-served basis. If your enrollment form is received and the class is filled, your deposit will be refunded.
  • Once our office receives the registration and payment, we will send the Parents a post-card confirming the registration. Details regarding the required Parent and Student orientation meeting will be sent in a letter to the Parents during the week prior to the beginning of the course.
  • If a Student requires any accommodations due to a documented disability, please contact the Nebraska Safety Center prior to the beginning of the course. Special arrangements can be made to accommodate these needs.
  • Students are provided up to 3.5 hours of on-street driving time. Students requiring more than 3.5 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.
  • On-street drive times are scheduled with the Instructor at mutually convenient times and will be conducted in the local school area and could take up to two weeks to complete. 
  • If the Driver Education Student is under 18 years of age at the time the course is completed, passing the course with his/her current permit results in a waiver of the written and drive tests at the Nebraska DMV’s Driving Examination Office. If the Student is 18, or older, he/she will receive a certificate, but must still take the written and drive tests at the DMV office.
  • Check Re-presentment Policy: In the event that your check is returned unpaid for insufficient or uncollected funds, we may re-present your check electronically. In the ordinary course of business, your check will not be provided to you with your bank statement, but a copy can be retrieved by contacting your financial institution.
  • Classes do require a minimum of eight students to be held.  If the minimum is not met students will be notified prior to the start of class and will be issued a refund or switched to another class, if available.
