By JOE REEL, Associated PressBakersfield, California (AP) High schoolers will be in school next year, but not driving cars.
Instead, high school students will have a chance to learn to drive with an official driving school.
It’s part of the California High School Drivers Education program, a pilot program run by the state Department of Education.
Students will start at age 18 and be in driving school from age 18.
The program is the first of its kind in the U.S.
The state is looking for more drivers and more high school graduates to work at the state’s high schools.
The pilot is an early step to finding more driver-education jobs, but the goal is to see how the program can expand.
The idea was to give them the ability to drive, but also to learn how to drive safely and competently.
The goal is that they’ll also be able to make better decisions about their lives and be more aware of traffic, traffic rules and how they should behave around other drivers.
Bakersfields high school student Nick Ebert is driving the first-generation car, a Lexus LS450.
The first-year driver is not supposed to be a driver.
It’s a learner program and not intended to replace a driver’s license, said Katie Smith, the program director.
We are just looking for drivers that are ready to go into driving school to be able and ready to take this on.
The car’s electric motor is charged by a solar panel, which is why the car is designed to be environmentally friendly, Smith said.
She said that the car’s battery is about a third the size of a car’s, and it has a maximum range of about 300 miles.
The cars will be driven around the county for about two weeks.
It is a chance for students to learn what to expect and learn from the other drivers on the road.
This is the beginning of the learning curve, Smith added.
The program will help them learn about road safety and traffic, but it will also help them practice driving safely.
There are also opportunities for other students to drive.
The car can go through traffic lights and stop at red lights.
The school will also have a carpool program.
Students who don’t have driving experience can drive.
Students who have not driven before will take classes in driving.
They are learning to learn, Smith says.
There are some safety tips in the curriculum, but those are not the ones we are going to teach.
Students can take a class and be driven, or they can take an online driving test.
Smith says students can take it on their own time.
The goal is not to replace driving, but to teach them about safe driving, Smith noted.
Students also will have an opportunity to practice driving.
The first step will be learning how to use their hands, Smith explained.
The school will start with about 150 students, but more students will be needed as the program expands.
There is a learning curve for students, Smith emphasized.
The initial learning will be a little bit different, but once you start doing it, you’ll learn how not to do it, she said.
The students will continue to be driven on the course.
It will be an introduction to what driving means and what is expected of a driver in a certain situation, Smith pointed out.
There will be other opportunities for students who want to learn more about cars.
The course will be designed to help students understand why some of the vehicles are safer than others, such as a car that has an electric engine and an airbag, Smith indicated.
