Driver's Education

Driver’s Education is offered during the Summer at Bishop Lynch.  The Summer Session begins June 5, with classroom instruction for 2 hours a day for 3 weeks.  The classroom phase consists of 32 hours, with an additional 14 hours of Behind the Wheel beginning after the classroom phase is over. 

The total cost for the course is $500.00. 

Behind the Wheel is offered during the Summer Break following the completion of the classroom phase. Students will sign up for Behind the Wheel drive times during the classroom phase. By state law, attendance is mandatory in order to receive a driver’s license. No more than two absences are allowed, and these absences must be made up.  An additional 20 hours of drive time must be completed with a parent before the final certificate is issued.  The form will be given the first day of class with instructions for the student and parent. If a student does not show up for their scheduled driving time, a $25 fine will be assessed.  Please keep your assigned time.

Students will need a Texas Department of Public Safety Driver’s Handbook, which can be picked up at any DPS headquarters.

Please read all information on the attached Student Enrollment Contract; sign and return the payment form along with your check, Money Order made out to Bishop Lynch, or MKS information for BL students, to Bishop Lynch c/o Andy Zihlman.
