Learning to drive is a major milestone in a teenager’s life! Joshua's Law requires all sixteen year olds take an approved driver's education course before obtaining their driver's license. Coastal Pines is an authorized provider in the Georgia Driver’s Education Grant Scholarship Program by the Commission! This state approved program includes 30 hours of classroom instruction and 6 hours of behind-the-wheel instruction for a total of at least 36 hours. A Driver's Permit must be presented at the time of registration. The Georgia Driver's Education Commission offers the Georgia Driver's Education Grant Scholarship Program to offer driver's education to Georgia students. The grant scholarship program is open to Georgia residents ages fifteen through seventeen who wish to satisfy the Joshua's Law driver's education requirement with an approved instructor. First priority will be given to grant scholarship applicants who are a child or dependent of a public safety professional or member of the United States military killed in the line of duty. Second priority will be given to scholarship applicants who can demonstrate a need based on family income. Third priority will be given to all applicants who do not meet the criteria set forth in the first priority and second priority outlined above. Grant scholarship allocations are evenly distributed among Georgia's United States congressional districts.
