Learning to drive is a major milestone in a teenager’s life. It’s important for young or inexperienced drivers to learn safe driving techniques. There are four different ways Joshua’s Law can be satisfied for teenagers to meet the requirements for a Class D license. The program offered by South Georgia Technical College (SGTC) meets the option that includes 30 hours of classroom instruction and 6 additional hours of drive time with an instructor. SGTC provides a (DDS approved) Driver’s Education program in cooperation with the Georgia Driver’s Education Commission (GDEC).
Students ages 15-17 with a Georgia learner’s permit are encouraged to apply for the grant scholarship (value of $350.00). Scholarships are not awarded by SGTC and therefore, SGTC will not be able to check the status of scholarship applications. GDEC operates the scholarship program so any scholarship inquiries will need to be directed to GDEC. Program eligibility information can be found by clicking here.
