Driver's Education prepares you for the driver's seat! On January 1, 2002, the requirements changed for anyone under age 17 to obtain an initial Georgia driver's license. Now, under O.C.G.A. 40-5-22, option (A), ALL under age 17 applicants must complete a driver education program consisting of a minimum of 30 hours of classroom and 6 hours of behind-the-wheel training. The driver's education program meets the requirements under the state code section. Nathan's Driving School is and has been a member of the National Safety Council, the Driving School Association of the Americas, and licensed by the State of Georgia since 1988. Nathan has been in Drivers Education as a business for more than 29 years. The classroom training portion is held at Eastside and will be taught by an instructor from Nathan's. All in-car lessons are designed for each individual student. The student is required to have a learner's permit for the in-car lessons.
