Segment 2

Once you’ve earned your Level 1 Learner’s License, and are feeling comfortable behind the wheel, it’s time to start thinking about signing up for the next class. Segment 2 is a state-required class designed to teach students defensive driving techniques and review materials taught in Segment 1. By law you have to wait 3-months from receiving your Level 1 Learner’s License to take the class.

STUDENT ELIGIBILITY
Students must have completed Segment 1 and must wait 90 days after receiving their Level 1 license before registering for Segment 2. It is this in-between time (between Segment 1 & 2) that students are to be gaining experience by accumulating drive time.

6 HOURS OF CLASSROOM
Segment 2 is held over a period of three days. Each class is 2 hours in length and does not involve driving. Segment 2 is designed to get teens ready for their first experience of driving alone along with preparing them for the road test. Students share their behind-the-wheel experiences.

BEHIND-THE-WHEEL INSTRUCTION:
Segment 2 consists of three separate 2 hour classes. There is no behind-the wheel instruction.

DRIVE REQUIREMENTS:
Students must have logged 30 hours of the required 50 hours of driving time with their parents (2 hours of night driving)
Documentation of logged hours along with a parent signature as verification of said hours is mandatory.

TOPICS DISCUSSED IN SEGMENT 2
As mandated by the State of Michigan, students learn about risk—the dangers of distracted, impaired, fatigue and emotional driving AND learn strategies for safety.

COST OF CLASS:
$50 which must be paid IN FULL by the first day of class.

WHAT DO I BRING TO CLASS?
Students must bring in their Level One License (NOT the green certificate of completion) and a copy of their logged driving hours.

COMPLETION OF SEGMENT 2
A written test provided by the State of Michigan consisting of 20 questions must be completed with a passing score of 80%. Once you pass the written test, you will receive a Segment 2 Completion Certificate, AKA your ticket to taking the Road Test.

LEVEL TWO LICENSE:
After successful completion of Segment 2, students are eligible to take the road test (so long as they are age 16 and possessed the Level 1 license for a minimum of 6 months). Upon passing the road test (with a third party examiner), teens will then acquire a certificate and a Level 2 license. Level 2 teens can drive alone, however not between the hours of 10pm to 5am (with a few exceptions). This is also the level where the teen MAY NOT OPERATE A VEHICLE AT ANY TIME WITH MORE THAN 1 PASSENGER IN THE VEHICLE WHO IS LESS THAN 21 YEARS OF AGE (with a few exceptions).
