HPE II Drivers Education Information

All students registered for HPE 2 and requiring the driver education classroom component will be provided two options to complete this requirement.

Starting in fall 2022, VPW will now begin providing the VADETs Driver Education course through our HPE 2 course at no tuition during the fall and spring sessions. This course will be conducted in the VADETs Canvas website. If a student elects not to complete driver education with their VPW HPE 2 course, they can do so on their own at a later date through the VADETs program directly. The cost to complete Driver Ed directly with VADETs is $119.

*Note: This is not behind the wheel/road and range training. Please coordinate with your base school before your student gets their license.
