Driver Education is a program offered by the Levittown School District to resident students who are 16 years of age prior to the start of the program session. If the demand for Driver Education is too great for the number of available spots and the student meets the prerequisites, selection for the program will be made on the basis of age and grade - seniors are selected first in chronological order by birth date; remaining students are selected in age order regardless of grade.
