The Glenbrook South High School Driver Education program is designed to teach students the knowledge and technical skills necessary to become licensed drivers in the State of Illinois.

Our comprehensive curriculum covers a wide range of topics, including traffic laws, defensive driving techniques, and vehicle safety and maintenance. The goal of our Driver Education department is to help students become safe and responsible drivers.
