Semester 2 BEHIND THE WHEEL Registration

Registration for Behind the Wheel during Semester 2, 2022-2023, will take place from Monday, November 28 through Friday, December 2, 2022.  A student interested in signing up for Behind the Wheel second semester must either be enrolled in Driver’s Education classroom currently (Semester 1), be enrolled in Driver’s Education classroom Semester 2 2022-2023 or have already completed Driver’s Education classroom successfully.

There is a new registration process for Behind the Wheel.  The registration process will consist of the completion of the Google form above. The form will be available at 9:00 a.m. on Monday, November 28 through 3:00 p.m. on Friday, December 2.  Registration will be filled by date of birth with the oldest students being assigned first and working towards the younger students.  Students and parents will be notified in early December if they were assigned a Behind the Wheel spot.  At that time, the $220 Behind the Wheel fee will be due.

As you are completing the Google registration form above, you will be asked to select your session and time, in order of preference,  in which you will drive.  Please take into consideration commitments such as sports, jobs, clubs, etc. when selecting the times your student is available to be taught.  The demand for Behind the Wheel is very great and it is usually not possible to change your assignment if you suddenly have a conflict. Scheduling conflicts could result in the student having to take Behind the Wheel in the summer or at a later date.

Willowbrook Driver Education Department

Willowbrook High School provides a comprehensive Driver Education Program to all eligible students that reside within the District (whether enrolled in the school or not) between the ages of 15 and 21 who request such a course.  The course focuses on preparing students for the rigors and responsibilities of driving. Students will need to successfully complete the classroom Driver Education class, which is one semester long. Students will learn not only the rules of the road but also the dangers of behaviors such as texting and driving and drinking/drug use and driving. A variety of guest speakers are planned every semester, who deliver the latest news and trends in teen driving.

The Behind the Wheel Program consists of six hours of on-street training and at least six hours of observation time. All Driver Education instructors are certified teachers and provide the best instruction available. Behind the Wheel times are scheduled for before school, after school and summer school.
