The Berks County Intermediate Unit offers behind-the-wheel driver education for students in Berks County.
Behind-the-wheel instruction provides high school students with six (6) hours of training in a BCIU provided-vehicle with an instructor certified by the Pennsylvania Department of Education. Training can be taken separately or in conjunction with theory instruction. Students may receive .10 academic credits for successfully completing behind-the-wheel instruction, depending on school district policy.
Instructors will make individual appointments with students for behind-the-wheel training on Saturdays, Sundays, and weekday evenings.
There is no deadline for registering for behind-the-wheel instruction. Registrants will be contacted by the instructor, who arranges the time and day of driving instructions. Names are added to the behind-the-wheel training list as registrations are received.
