Due to the state-mandated shutdown of Montgomery County schools, the Community Ed program is on hold. We plan to tentatively resume classes in June, but this is subject to change. 

Any class or lesson advertised in our winter or current late spring/summer brochure that occurs before June 1 will be postponed/canceled. If you are currently enrolled in a class/lesson that takes place during the time we are closed, we will be in touch to determine if refunds or rescheduling of your class is most appropriate. 

All Behind-the-Wheel lessons have also been postponed. Instructors will reach out to reschedule any lessons that were supposed to take place during the two-week closure. Please be advised that PennDOT licensing centers are also closed for two weeks. They have advised the following regarding learner's permits that may expire during the closure:

Driver licenses, photo ID cards and learner’s permits scheduled to expire from March 16, 2020 through April 30, 2020, the expiration date is now extended until May 31, 2020.

For more information, please visit this webpage:

Any online theory classes for driver's education can continue during the closure, so long as the provider is operating on a normal schedule. Please check with your provider for details.

Thank you for your patience. Please feel free to email us at if you have questions/concerns.
