Driver Education

You can't spell career without c-a-r!

To be successful in a career, you have to be able to get there! That's why Hocking College will begin offering Driver Education courses in January, 2021. Both teenage and adult driving instruction (Class D) will be available to Hocking College students and members of the community.

Inclement Weather

The Driver Education Program will be training when the weather is inclement, with the exception of a Level 3, as issued by the Athens County Sheriff's Office. We will use altered routes and always error on the safe side.   As always, driving is your choice. Please contact us should you have questions 740-753-7183 or cunninghama37883@hocking.edu.

Pandemic Precautions

Students in Hocking College's Driver Education course must follow the following rules:

  • Both the student and the instructor will be screened before entering class, or entering the car for the behind-the-wheel portion of each class.  
  • Face masks will be required for class and six foot distancing also in place.  
  • During the behind-the-wheel portion of the program, each person in the car, driver and instructor, will wear a face mask due to the close proximity in the car.
  • The car will be sanitized after each drive to ensure a healthy environment. This includes the keys, steering wheel, door handles, seatbelt, gear shift, knobs, signals and the emergency brake.
