North Platte Community College will offer a Driver Education course July 23-27. Class time is from 8 a.m. to noon each day and driving sessions will be in the afternoon. The registration deadline is July 17. 

Driver Education is open to students as young as 14 who have a learner's permit. It is approved by the Nebraska Department of Motor Vehicles and consists of 20 hours of class time and five hours of drive time. 

The instructors are: Will Winchester, Tom Allberry, Dennis Fornander, Jeff and Janet Henne, Lynn Rinehart and Bob Zohner. 

Those who successfully complete the program will receive a waiver, enabling them to skip both the written test and the drive test when applying for a license. Discounts on car insurance may also apply, depending on the policy. 

A $235 course fee, which covers the cost of a required textbook, must be paid in advance. Payments will not be accepted at the door. Registration can be done online at
