Driver Education Information


Thank you for not parking in the maroon parking stalls in the north parking lot between 2:30 & 7:00 p.m. Monday – Friday and Saturday mornings. We would rather not tow or ticket your vehicles!!!  Park in a yellow stall and you will be safe! Thanks for your cooperation.

3rd Quarter DRIVER EDUCATION students (& parents)

It is time for you to get your Learner Permit if you have not already done so. It is to your advantage to get your permit from the Utah Driver License Division BEFORE the quarter begins (driverlicense.utah.gov). You must score a minimum of 80% on the Utah Driver Handbook examination to apply for a Utah learner permit. Coach Galley has Utah Driver Handbooks available free of charge in his classroom and he also offers the test free of charge in Room 2626 before school (Mon-Thur) at 7:00 a.m. You may also go directly to the D.L. D. to take the test. If you do not plan on getting a learner permit, please see your counselor to transfer out of 3rd  quarter Dr. Ed. Thanks!


Our popular Dr. Ed. Parent Nights are scheduled in the auditorium each quarter for the parent(s) of current Dr. Ed. students. We encourage you to look ahead and save the date for when you will need to attend. Please note that the general public and any other family members or friends are also invited to join us at this powerful presentation. The Zero Fatalities Parent Night is informative and life changing.

R.H.S. Auditorium from 7:00-8:15 p.m.

2nd Quarter  Monday, November 24th 
3rd Quarter  Monday, February 9th  
4th Quarter  Monday, April 13th

Back in ’82…or ’72…or even ’92…

Times sure have changed. Kids who once were begging to get their driver’s licenses are becoming difficult to find. Now that teens can survive anywhere with a little food, water, and their phone, transportation and face to face human interaction just isn’t that important anymore. So, why drive? It’s dangerous and expensive and they have apps to download! R.H.S. currently has several hundred students who have passed the classroom phase but have not completed the driving phases (range and/or road, including the road test). Please do not make the mistake that many are making: thinking that they can just go to the D.L.D. and ask for a license without completing the state-mandated requirements. If your student has dragged his or her feet and would now like to join the millions of other Americans who have a driver license, please send them to Coach Galley in Room 2626. Regardless of the reason(s) or excuse(s) for not completing, he can help the “licenseless”.
