Pinellas County Schools will offer a driver's education camp at ten locations this summer. There will be two sessions at each site that are open to both public and private school students at a cost of $175.00 per student.  Students will be scheduled for either an AM Session from 7:30am – 10:30am OR a PM Session from 11:00am – 2:00pm to allow for small group driving instruction. The camp is open to residents of Pinellas County. Students who are scheduled to graduate in 2023 are not eligible.
