Summer Behind the Wheel Sessions!

 *This applies only to students who have (1) completed the classroom portion of Driver's Education, and (2) currently have a valid instruction permit*


Unit 5 will be offering summer Behind the Wheel  during the month of June.  JUNE 5 – JUNE 29 (Monday–Thursday)

As your son/daughter prepares to get their Driver's License, we wanted to contact you regarding Behind the Wheel for your son/daughter.  Behind the Wheel sections will be full and we have a limited number of sections for the 2017–2018 school year, and your son/daughter will be assigned Behind the Wheel based on birthdate and availability.  Exact dates cannot be determined at this time.

At this point, there are three options for Behind the Wheel:  1) Register for the June session, 2) wait until we return from summer break to take behind the Wheel in the 2017-2018 school year, or 3) have your son/daughter take it through a private driving school facility.

If you decide to wait until after summer break, your son/daughter will be placed in a driving group based on birthdate and availability.  If you decide to go through a private driving school, I would greatly appreciate it if you could notify me so I can remove their name from our Behind the Wheel list. Here is a link to a form that will provide me with the information needed to form our 2017 -2017 Behind the Wheel schedule (click here to complete the form (  Please complete by 4/28/2017!

If you have already paid for Behind the Wheel and plan to go to a private driving school, please contact the Normal West main office so they can submit an order for reimbursement.

If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact me.

Thank you,
