POTTSTOWN PA – Pottsgrove High School students who want to learn to drive an automobile correctly and safely, and earn a driver insurance discount in the process, may soon get their chance.
The Montgomery County (PA) Intermediate Unit, which provides county schools with a variety of services, is willing to schedule after-school driver’s education classes if a sufficient number of students enroll, high school Principal Chris Shaffer said Wednesday (Oct. 27, 2010) via e-mail.
The two classes consist of 30 hours of classroom instruction, at a cost of $190; and 6 hours of behind-the-wheel guidance, at a cost of $300. An MCIU brochure supplied by Shaffer that more fully explains both is available for download, here. It also includes a registration form which, when completed, should be submitted to the high school office, Kauffman Road, Pottstown PA.
Successful completion of both courses often entitles the student to a 10-percent discount on automobile insurance, the brochure states.
Classes won’t be held locally unless the high school attracts a minimum of 15 students, Shaffer said. He intends to promote them in coming weeks during morning announcements and in the high school’s health and physical education courses. For more information, call 610-326-5105.
