Policymakers in Illinois are committed to ensuring that young drivers have the skills necessary to safely operate a motor vehicle. These skills include a solid knowledge of traffic laws, vehicle operation, and motorists’ responsibilities. Illinois requires first-time driver’s license applicants (between 18 and 20) to complete a six-hour Adult Driver Education course if they did not take driver education through their high school or through a driving school.
The students pictured here recently completed Nova’s one-day, six-hour Adult Driver Education course. During the class, students learned about safe driving strategies; the Rules of the Road; the process for earning a driver’s license in Illinois; the dangers of distracted driving; the risks posed by driving under the influence; and ways to drive safely at night and in adverse weather conditions, among other topics.
Classes are held on most Sundays of the month at Nova’s main branch at 2036 N. Western Avenue and on specific dates at Nova’s Hyde Park branch at 5503 S. Harper Ave in Chicago.
