PARENT/STUDENT ORIENTATION before every Segment 1 class parents and students must attend this orientation. By design, this program is aimed at empowering both students/parents with all the information they will need to know about the class, and our state’s laws. Parents will become savvy about Michigan’s Graduated Licensure Program. No more wondering who, where or when your son/daughter can drive!
