DRIVER’S EDUCATION AT BAY PORT HIGH SCHOOL
Driver’s education consists of two parts: Classroom and Behind-the-Wheel. State Law requires anyone under 18 to complete both parts. Bay Port High School offers both parts of drivers’ education only during the summer. State Law also stipulates certain age requirements to be eligible for each part of drivers’ education. All students, regardless of grade level, who will turn 15 on or before September 30, 2019 are eligible for the classroom portion of driver’s education this upcoming summer. Students cannot receive their instruction permit until the age of 15 years 6 months AND be enrolled in a Behind-the-Wheel program. Therefore, to be eligible for the Behind-the-Wheel portion, students must turn 16 on or before December 31, 2019. There is no cost to
Bay Port students for the classroom. Cost for Behind-the-Wheel is $295.

Four Classroom Times:
All students taking Behind-The-Wheel will need to pass a written test and eye exam to obtain their instruction permit. An instruction permit is needed before behind-the-wheel instruction can begin. This Temps Test will be given on Tuesday, April 16, 2019 in the LMC during the student’s study halls. Students who are unsuccessful on their first attempt on the test or students unable to take the test on this day will have an opportunity to take the test on Thursday, April 18 at 6:50am in Rm B213. Those students that do not pass or take the first two tests will be required to go to the Department of Motor Vehicles to take or re-take the test sometime after the testing date at Bay Port. State Law requires that students cannot get their instruction permit more than 60 days before starting behind-the-wheel instruction. Therefore, with no exceptions, no student taking behind-the-wheel at Bay Port will be allowed to take this test before the test date in April at Bay Port High School. The WisconsinDrEdManual is located on the Bay Port High School Website for students to start studying for their written temp test.
