To inform students of the laws governing the operation and ownership of a motor vehicle.
To acquaint students with driving techniques and strategies for avoiding collisions and for dealing with emergencies.
To build students' perpetual and decision making skills.
To make students aware of their responsibility for safe vehicle operation, including the use of safety belts and the avoidance of alcohol and other drugs.
To encourage an attitude of cooperation with other highway users, including pedestrians, bicycles, motorcycles, and other drivers.
