The mission of driver education in Wisconsin high schools is to provide students with the skills to drive safely. Driver and safety education is based on the belief that this is a critical lifelong skill affecting the conservation and quality of human health and life. In order to accomplish its mission, driver and safety education programs focus on providing learning opportunities for the development of the skills, knowledge, and thought processes necessary to become a safe and efficient driver, and a responsible user of the Highway Transportation System (HTS).

Southwest Tech's Driver Education Program will prepare students with at least minimal capabilities for entry into the highway traffic system as vehicle operators, equip students with the knowledge and thought processes to enable them to make wise decisions as drivers and help students acquire the insight and motivation needed to become responsible users of the Highway Transportation System.

Southwest Tech offers both traditional and online driver education to students within our district and throughout the state, as well as behind-the-wheel instruction for our district high schools.
