LCCC Offers Young Driver Classes Using TransSim VS5 Driving Simulator in Spring 2016  

published Tuesday, March 1, 2016

Lehigh Carbon Community College (LCCC) offers noncredit classes in its Young Driver Program for the public.

The Young Driver Program is a comprehensive training experience for students in the process of getting their driver’s license or for the recently licensed student 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.

The Young Driver Program takes place at LCCC main campus in Schnecksville. Both evening and daytime sessions are offered. Classes are held from 5 to 8 p.m. on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and from 5 to 9 p.m. on Thursdays, beginning March 22 to 24 and May 17 to 19. On Tuesday and Wednesday, June 21 and 22, class runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuition is $175. Students require a valid email address at the time of registration for all class communications and document distribution.
