Michigan's driver education curriculum is split into two segments and is required for all teen drivers under age 18.
Segment 1 driver education is offered before the driver begins supervised driving. It requires a minimum of 24 hours of classroom instruction and a minimum of six hours of behind-the-wheel instruction. Before beginning Segment 1, a teen must be 14 years, 8 months of age and have parent/guardian permission. (Behind-the-wheel instruction will take place outside of regular class day/time for up to 3 weeks after last day of scheduled class.)
Segment 2 driver education is offered after the driver has held a valid MI Graduated Level 1 Learner's License (from MI Secretary of State) for at least three continuous months and has acquired 30 hours of driving experience time including a minimum of two hours of night driving. Segment 2 includes a minimum of six hours of classroom instruction.
Our classes are taught by Bedford Public School Teachers who are Certified State of Michigan Driver Education Instructors.
