TEEN 24-HOUR ONLINE COURSE
Public Safety Driving School - 24889 Aurora Rd Bedford Heights, OH 44146
TEEN COURSE CLASSROOM TRAINING NOTE - A student may begin online or traditional classroom sessions at 15 years and 5 months of age and may begin in-vehicle lessons at 15 and 6 months old if 1.) they possess a Temporary Permit and 2.) have shown proof of at least 2 hours of classroom instruction. All students must attend 24 hours of classroom training and pass a final exam with a score of 75% or better. Students have 3 tries to pass the final classroom exam. If the student cannot pass after the 3rd attempt, all training and associated costs must be repeated. We will furnish a licensed instructor for all training. Driver training schools and their instructors are licensed by the Department of Public Safety through the Ohio Driving Training Program Office, 1970 W Broad Street Columbus, OH 43223. *Students have 30 days to complete the course, beginning on the date the course is started.
PAYMENT PLANS & REFUNDS – Payment plans may be available by calling the office. Additional fees may apply. No refunds will be given if we are willing and able to complete all training above within six months of the date of the first class. We accept cash, checks and credit cards (VISA, MC, AE, or DISC).
POLICIES FOR DISMISSAL: A student may be dismissed from the course at any time for any of the following reasons:
1. If a student does not meet Ohio state requirements for the course.
2. If a student is found to be cheating at any point during the course.
3. If an unauthorized person is found to be taking the course on behalf of the student.
IN-VEHICLE TRAINING (if necessary) – Once a student has a Temporary Permit, have paid in full and have completed at least 2 hours of traditional classroom training or turned in their 2 hour online classroom enrollment certificate, in vehicle lessons may be scheduled and completed. All lessons are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis. A 24-hour notice is required to reschedule or cancel an in-vehicle lesson. A $50.00 rescheduling fee will be charged if we do not receive appropriate notice and is considered a “no show”. All students must have their driving permit, closed toed shoes (no flip-flops) and glasses/contacts (if prescribed) with them for all in-vehicle lessons. Students arriving for an in-vehicle lesson without any of these will result in a cancelled lesson and a rescheduling fee. In order to allow time for the student to practice key skills, we suggest at least 1 day between in-vehicle lessons. Our instructors are not responsible for students prior to or after a scheduled class time or in-vehicle lesson.
CERTIFICATE OF COMPLETION FOR TEEN COURSE - DSO will issue a Certificate of Completion for all students who successfully complete the 24-hour classroom and 8-hour in-vehicle course. Please allow 3 business days to receive your certificate of completion in the mail upon the successful completion of the course. If a Certificate of Completion is lost or misplaced, a duplicate certificate may be issued at a cost of $12.00.
