Driver Education

Radford University offers a course sequence through the Department of Exercise, Sport, and Health Education that leads to an add-on endorsement in Driver Education. Upon successful completion of HLTH 410-Drivers Education Theory and HLTH 412-Driver Education-Driver Task Analysis (behind-the-wheel),  RU will recommend the add-on endorsement. HLTH 410 is usually taught in the evenings spring semester. HLTH 412 is usually taught as a condensed course during the summer. This course sequence is open to those who are currently teaching in Virginia or enrolled in a teacher preparation program.

Based on the National Association of State Directors of Teacher Education and Certification agreement, candidates will be eligible for teacher licensure reciprocity with other states.
