ELKO — Great Basin College is offering online driver’s education for students under age 18 seeking their initial driver’s license.

This course provides the information necessary to become a safe driver, including how to handle distractions and peer pressure, how to drive in poor weather conditions, and what to do in a vehicle breakdown.

Those who successfully complete the course are issued a certificate from Great Basin College that is accepted by the Nevada DMV as proof of obtaining 30 hours of driver’s education.

The course is taught online, and students can work 24/7 at their own pace through the 10 modules. The fee is $75.
