Registration for free driver ed opens Monday

The Pinellas County School District will offer free drivers education this summer in two sessions to public and private school students who haven't yet graduated from high school. Students must be residents of Pinellas County.

Registration begins Monday. Only 40 students will be accepted per session.

Each session has 10 class days from 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Session 1 is June 9-12, 16-19 and 23-24. Session 2 is June 25, 26 and 30, and July 1-3 and 7-10.

Students must be at least 15 years old and have a learner's permit or operator's license when the session begins. If a student misses two classes, they will be withdrawn from the course (three tardies will equal one absence).
