Driver's Education

Driver's education provides a student driver the skills and mental attitudes to become the most competent, skillful and responsible driver possible. In addition, this serves as a base for parents to continue the instruction and supervision of their young driver in developing the expertise needed to be a safe driver.

We offer five-day courses, Monday-Friday and four-day weekend courses, Saturday-Sunday for 2 weekends. This course delivers classroom instruction, in-car observation with other students and the course instructor, and actual behind-the-wheel driving practice.

Classroom and driving instruction will occur at the MCC-Blue River East campus located at 21227 E. 78 Hwy., Independence, MO.
