posted on Tuesday, September 18, 2018 in  College News

WATERLOO–Hawkeye Community College is launching a new driver’s education program to help beginning drivers develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to become safe, responsible drivers.

The program will provide 30 hours of classroom instruction and six hours of behind-the-wheel instruction. Students must be at least 14 years old and obtain a learner’s permit prior to enrolling. Students are not required to have any driving practice before coming to class. 

Classes begin October 8, 2018, and will be held in Buchanan Hall on Hawkeye’s Main Campus, 1501 E. Orange Rd, Waterloo, Iowa. Driving times are flexible and will be coordinated with students and the instructor.

This program meets the requirement of the Iowa Department of Transportation (DOT) Motor Vehicles Division (DMV) for teenagers to obtain the graduated driver's license (GDL).
