The SUNY Erie Driver Education Program is a comprehensive program providing each student with six hours of behind-the-wheel training, a minimum 18 hours in-car observation, and 24 hours of classroom lectures and exams. Enrollment is on a first come, first served basis. To guarantee a space in class, the following must be received in our office: payment, the signed consent and a clear copy of the permit.
