Online Driver’s Education Curriculum - Prepared by Eric Hoffman - Santa Fe Trail High School

For the online Driver’s Education class we will be using the Drive Right: You are the Driver, 10th ed. textbook, which will be provided. To successfully complete the online curriculum for Driver’s Education you must complete the following with no less than 80% mastery:

  • 1 – Handbook Test
        • Standard Test given by Kansas DMV over driving handbook (supervised by instructor)             
        • Each Chapter Exam contains 40 questions
  • 1 – Cumulative Final Exam (supervised by instructor)
        • 50 questions covering all chapters


Students will be assigned a driving instructor.  That instructor will inform you of your driving times.  It is your responsibility to inform the instructor of times you are not available to drive.  Missed drive times could delay or keep you from passing the course.  Most all of the driving will take place after school is out and the month of June.  

In order to pass the driving portion of the class a student must:

  1. Students will be required to pass driving based competences:
    1. driving fundamentals
    2. turns
    3. parking
    4. urban driving
    5. highway driving
    6. rural driving
  2. Be on time to driving dates.
  3. Have mature behavior in car.

If you have passed both the classroom and the driving areas of the driver’s education class you will then receive a certificate of completion form.
