Driver Education

We hope to have information for new participants 

     for Segment 1 and Segment 2 by LATE august. 


General Information

Since the 2002-2003 school year, Saline Community Education has been coordinating the Driver Education program for Saline Area Schools. Both the Segment 1 and Segment 2 classes are offered during the entire year.  We offer convenient class times and location; right at Saline High School.  Your student will find that our instructors are knowledgeable, friendly and professional.  We encourage you to compare prices, our rates are very competitive, no additional fees.  For more information or to register, please call (734) 401-4020.


Guidelines and Requirements:

  • Students must be 14 years and 8 months old before the first day of class.  View Minimum Age Verification Tables.
  • In addition to normal classroom lecture and discussion, weekly written assignments and quizzes will be given evaluating each student's progress. A certificate of completion will be given at the end of the course.
  • Actual on-road driving time will consist of six hours in order to meet the state certification guidelines.
  • Attendance: State law requires 24 hours of classroom instruction and 6 hours of behind-the-wheel instruction.  Anything less than 24 hours will result in the student being dropped from the program.
  • It is required by the State of Michigan that the class size does not exceed 36 students.

​​   SEGMENT 2

Teens will be required to present a log documenting their supervised practice driving prior to beginning a Segment 2 class.  The driving log must show that the student completed at least 30 hours of driving (including 2 hours of nighttime driving).

Teens holding a Level 1 GDL also will need to present the driving log prior to taking a driving skills test.  The examiner will confirm that the driving log shows the teen completed at least 50 hours of driving (including 10 hours of nighttime driving) before attempting the driving skills test.
