The driver education endorsement program is available to Florida teachers who possess certification in other subject areas and wish to teach high school driver education. The courses leading to the endorsement will review basic driving rules and procedures associated with driving as well as how to implement these procedures using engaging instructional strategies. Teaching strategies to assist participants with classroom implementation will be used throughout the three courses in sequence. Sample teaching strategies and curriculum connections will also be included in the three courses.
