Behind the Wheel

  •  

    The Owen J. Roberts Behind the Wheel Program is back as of March 16th!

    Owen J. Roberts School District will be providing Behind-the Wheel Training for students currently  attending Owen J. Roberts High School. 

    Cost: $350 --Log into your SchoolPay account to register and pay for the Behind the Wheel Program.

    Times: Afternoons, Evenings, Saturdays and Summer 

    Location: OJRHS Campus 

    All students who want the Behind-the-Wheel Phase of Driver Education must have a PA learner’s permit  or PA driver’s license. You must also complete and pass the Classroom Phase of Driver Education.  Please complete the form (on the back) and register (with payment)  through SchoolPay. The cost of the program will cover 6 hours of behind-the-wheel training. 

    The school can administer the road test to a student during the last half hour of their 6 hours of instruction. The  student must have completed the classroom instruction; had their permit for six months; and have completed  at least 65 hours of supervised practical driving prior to testing (including 10 hours of nighttime driving and 5 hours of  inclement weather driving). Students are listed and tested according to the test eligibility date located  on the permit. 

    The driver education teachers will individually schedule students for their driving lessons. Lessons will be  after school, evenings, Saturdays and during the summer. There will be no lessons on Sundays.  Please make every effort to accommodate  the times the instructor has you scheduled. To cancel a scheduled appointment, the instructor should  be notified 24 hours prior to the cancellation. If a student misses the lesson you may be charged for  that time scheduled at a rate of $35 per hour. Please note: Failure to bring along a valid permit, license or needed eyeglasses may also be considered a missed lesson and will be assessed accordingly.  

    Following the training, students will be issued a letter of completion for submission to insurance  carriers. The program is very popular. Please be patient! For questions or additional information,  contact Mr. Joe Youngblood  (jyoungblood@ojrsd.net) or Mr. Ryan Ayers (rayers@ojrsd.net).
