Student Driver’s Ed Course
St. John’s Prep is proud to partner with Tanner City Auto School, who offers a driver’s education program on campus. The program is open to Prep students as well as girls and boys attending other schools. Classes and road lessons are taught by experienced professional instructors. Tanner provides concierge-level service to our driving community- we have dedicated Prep driving instructors, and office staff at Tanner who work directly with our families.
The program provides students with a complete understanding of the Massachusetts rules of the road in preparation for the Massachusetts permit test. Classes, road lessons, and parent classes are all available. Students must be 15 years and 9 months at the start of their class. We will work with families to offer road lessons around your schedule. Pick-up and drop-off is typically at St. John’s; depending on location, students may be dropped off at home.
