Registration & Eligibility Information for Driver Education Program
The Bellmore-Merrick Central High School District will offer the Driver Education Program to all students who meet the following qualifications for enrollment:

2. A student must be at least 16 years of age on or before the first date of class.

Classes may be offered after school, before school hours, and on weekends, depending on student enrollment. Tentatively, classes will be scheduled for each of the high schools within the District. These classes will only be offered if there is sufficient enrollment to warrant a class being given within a building. If there are insufficient numbers within one building, students will be given the opportunity to attend a class in another building or a district class at a central location.
Registration forms will be available the second week of school in the main office of each CHSD high school building, as well as on the District website.
Registration will take place in September. A representative from the District Driver Education office will be available at each high school at specific times and dates to be announced. The cost of the course will be $560.
As this is not a tuition-based program and not part of the regular school day, this course carries no graduation credit.
Please Note: The Driver Education Program will also be given in the second semester, with registration beginning in January and classes tentatively starting the first week in February.
