Wednesday, June 20, 2018 by The Press in News Briefs


Lehigh Carbon Community College (LCCC) will offer noncredit classes in its young driver program for the public. All sessions take place at the college’s main campus in Schnecksville. Tuition is $190.

The program is a comprehensive training experience for students in the process of getting their driver’s license or for the recently licensed driver who is interested in additional education and training. The class includes time in LCCC’s driving simulator, TransSim VS5, to develop the reaction and critical thinking skills that new drivers need and concentrates on the four key driving skills that safety experts believe are significant in preventing crashes, injuries and fatalities: hazard recognition, vehicle handling, space management and speed management.

Daytime classes will be held Tuesday and Wednesday, July 17-18, or Wednesday and Thursday, Aug. 22-23, both 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Additional evening sessions are as follows: 5-8 p.m. Mondays and Tuesdays and 5-9 p.m. Wednesdays Sept. 10-12 and Nov. 12-14; and 5-8 p.m. Tuesdays and Wednesdays and 5-9 p.m. Thursdays Oct. 23-25 and Dec. 18-20.

Students require a valid email address at the time of registration for all class communications and document distribution.
