The Fayette County Career and Technical Institute offers a comprehensive driver’s training program approved by the Pennsylvania Department of Education, one of only two such programs in Fayette County. The program is available to students beginning one month prior to their 16th birthday who are currently enrolled in one of the following local school districts:
* Albert Gallatin School District
* Brownsville Area School District
* Laurel Highlands School District
* Uniontown Area School District
The cost for CTI students is $20. The cost for non-CTI students is $170. Fees are non-refundable.
The program consists of two sections:
Section 1-Online Course in Driver’s Theory
The students will complete a driver’s theory course conveniently offered completely online. The course is designed to take approximately 30 hours to complete and is accessible from any computer with an internet connection. The students complete the program at their own pace on their own time, although some time may be provided during the school day. The course consists of 9 chapters with corresponding online assessments and a comprehensive final exam. The final exam MUST be completed at the CTI under the supervision of the program coordinator. Students will be scheduled a testing time during the normal school day. The course units are designed to prepare students for the Pennsylvania driving learner’s permit test and to be more knowledgeable and safer drivers on the road. Students must complete Section 1 of the CTI’s Driver’s Training Program before beginning Section 2.
Section 2-Skills Training
In section 2, students will receive 6 hours of in-car skills training by a certified driving instructor after school hours. The days, times, and number of sessions are subject to change but students typically meet the 6-hour requirement over 5 days immediately following the school day using a school vehicle. Students are dropped off at their homes following each session. Students MUST already possess a valid learner’s permit or driver’s license to complete this portion of the program.
The FCCTI Driver’s Education Program will be available to CTI students for a tuition cost of $20 and to non-CTI students for $170. Fees may be paid using cash, check, or money order and are non-refundable. Make checks payable to Fayette CTI. Certificates of Completion will be issued after both sections of the course have been successfully completed. Check with your individual insurer to determine if a discount is available.
