Driver's Education

The Olathe Public Schools offer state-approved driver's education courses that meet either in an after-school or summer school format. The program emphasizes defensive driving and the social responsibility of driving. Successful completion of this course, plus additional driving experience, will enable students to obtain a Kansas driver's license if they are 16 years old, or a restricted license if they are 15 years old, once all requirements are met. The driver's education information line is (913) 780-7208.

Summer Program:

Applications for the summer programs can be obtained from your school office. The first session will run from June 2-26 and the second session will run from June 30-July 29. We offer morning and afternoon classes at Olathe East, Olathe North and Olathe South. Enrollment will be open until April 30 and priority is given to the oldest students first. Please use the envelope attached to the application and use the United States mail system. Applications submitted after April 30 will be considered if space is available.

All students are required to have a current Instructional Permit by the first day of class.

If you have any questions, please contact Director Kraig Taylor, or Jane Jones,
