REQUIRED PARENT MEETING
The Registry of Motor Vehicles now requires parents to attend a parent education class BEFORE their child can schedule any in-car driving or observation sessions.

  
Upcoming Parent Meetings
Held at ABRHS, 6:30-8:30 pm
 
Parent meetings are FREE for parents of children in our Driver Ed Program. Cost is $25 for parents of children who attend other Driver Ed programs. We are asking parents to please register for a parent meeting so we know how many people are coming and how many sets of materials to prepare. Parents whose children attend our Driver Ed program can register online or by calling the office at 978-266-2525. Parents whose children attend a different Driving School must register by phone and pay the $25 registration fee.
