The State of Illinois requires two phases of instruction to obtain a driver’s license. Additionally, the State requires that a student pass a minimum of 8 classes in the two preceding semesters (including middle school) to take Driver Education.  Driver Education is open to all eligible students that reside within the district between the ages of 15-21 who request the course.  Students are scheduled by birthdate priority. A student is not guaranteed driving during the semester he or she takes the classroom phase of Drivers Education. Any student participating in the behind-the-wheel phase will need to provide the instructor with two checks: one payable to the Secretary of State for the driving permit, the second payable to School District 204 to help defray the expense of the driving phase, an optional service our district provides.

Classroom Phase The State of Illinois requires at least 30 hours of instruction if the student desires to obtain his/her driver’s license before 18 years of age. Classroom instruction must be taken prior to or at the same time as the behind-the-wheel phase.
