Suffolk County Community College offers high school students a non-credit, state-certified Driver and Traffic Safety Education program. This program consists of 25.5 hours of classroom instruction and 25.5 hours of behind the wheel training and observation. Those who successfully complete the program will receive the MV-285 Student Certificate of Completion, issued by the NYS Department of Motor Vehicles. The MV-285 allows students with a NYS Junior Permit to schedule a road test, receive their senior license at the age of 17 instead of 18, and may be eligible for a rate reduction in their automobile insurance.
XDT100 (classroom instruction) will be offered virtually, in real-time online, at set days and times, using Blackboard Collaborate.
XDT200 (behind the wheel training/observation) will be offered as a hybrid course using a combination of Blackboard and in-car assignments. The actual in-car hours will be the responsibility of Parents/Guardians, with assignments/guidelines/logs provided by the college, through Blackboard. This portion will NOT be offered in real-time online and has no dates and times associated with it.
Please note that XDT100 and XDT200 are corequisites and must be taken together and successfully completed to obtain the MV-285. For more information, please call the Office of Continuing Education at (631) 451-4399 or email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
