NEW JERSEY (AP) New Jersey schools will be testing students in a new driving school program in the next two years after failing to pass a driving school test last year.
The state’s Office of Vocational Rehabilitation has awarded the contract to a company called Driving School Innovations to provide training in driving.
The company has hired 10 students who took the test and have been testing students at school and in private practice for about six months, according to a press release from the state’s Department of Transportation.
The contract includes hiring of additional staff, transportation and equipment, the state said.
The driving school is expected to begin testing students this fall and will be located in Manhattan.
It will have a first class of 10 students, with more to be added over time.
The Associated Press has reached out to the company for comment.
