Resources for Adapted Driver Education Programs in Georgia:

Hello!

Susan Baker, an OI teacher in Floyd County Schools, has provided us with some valuable information regarding adapted driver education programs for our students with physical disabilities. I have also spoken with a parent who has had direct experience with this process and would be happy to help with any additional information if needed.

While driver’s education is required for an actual license, there are options available to them other than participating in a certified driver training course.

The Department of Driver’s Services has put together a 40 hour parent/teen program that can be completed at home.
