Coastal Pines Technical College is pleased to announce it has been awarded a grant in the amount of $19,850 from the Georgia Driver’s Education Commission.

“Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for teenagers and we are committed to providing students with the education and experience needed to avoid tragedy” said GDEC chairman Harris Blackwood. “This grant will help Coastal Pines Technical College equip young drivers in the community to be safer when they get behind the wheel” continued Blackwood.

The grant, which runs from July 1, 2015 through June 30, 2016, will help finance driver’s education locally by providing classes with thirty hours of classroom instruction and six hours of behind the wheel experience with a trained instructor.

“We are pleased to have the opportunity to offer this driver’s education program for high school students.  Our college is dedicated to providing services to assist in educating our communities, stated President Deibert.” 

This program will begin in the various high schools throughout the service delivery area.   For more information about the driver’s education program, contact Markisha Butler at (912) 262-4317, or
