Albany-  Darton College's summer driver's education class has doubled a year after tougher restrictions were put in place as a result of Joshua's law.

Darton College started the program last year to help meet the demand for classes and their first class this summer started today with 22 students enrolled. Students must now have 30 hours of classroom education to obtain their driver's license. While there aren't a lot of statistics to prove the program is working, teachers believe the program is getting results.

"As far as statically, the state only started tracking research, January will be a year ago, so as far as any hard factual statistics there are none yet; however, we do see a definite transition period for the first day of class to the last day of class," said Stephanie Drawdy, Driver's Education Instructor.

Darton College will offer another class starting July 14th through the 18th.
