The Mississippi Bend Area Education Agency (AEA) Driver Education program was established more than 20 years ago in response to local school districts. The AEA Driver Education Program follows the state approved driver education guidelines. We provide 30 hours of classroom instruction and 6 hours of behind the wheel instruction. Included in the classroom component, students complete four hours of substance abuse education, 20 minutes on railroad crossing, information on organ donation, and instruction providing an awareness about sharing the road with bicycles and motorcycles.
