Traffic Safety

Registration for the 2013-2014 Traffic Safety Courses is now open!   **see the schedule below!**

The Renton School District offers a Traffic Safety course that follows the Washington State Traffic Safety Education Curriculum Resource Guide designed by the Washington State Traffic and Safety Education Association in 1995.

This course involves 30 hours of classroom instruction and 12 hours in the vehicle. Emphasis is placed on safe, efficient and economical use of the automobile through development of desirable habits and attitudes.

Upon successful completion of the course a student will earn .25 credit toward meeting graduation requirements for the Renton School District.

Students are required to be 15 years old by the beginning of the class.

All classes are held at:
Sartori Education Center
315 Garden Avenue North
Renton, WA
(directions)
Note:  Students must provide their own transportation to class.

Acceptance into the program is contingent upon completion of registration and payment in full of the $475 fee. 

**NEWS!**  In 2012 the Department of Licensing stopped offering driver’s license testing (both written and on-the-road exams) in their offices and have contracted the process to private driving schools & public schools.  Starting this school year, we will be offering driver’s license testing for our traffic safety students twice a year (roughly 6 months after the start of their traffic safety session).  Testing dates will be discussed at “Parent Night” (discussed in registration packet).  The fee for these exams are now included in the course fee.
