THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Before young drivers in Georgia can get a driver's license, they must meet Joshua's Law requirements. A south Georgia college helps them do that in a fun way.

Southwest Georgia Tech offers a 36-hour course which meets all requirements and emphasizes safe driving. The class is taught by retired Thomasville Police Lieutenant Norm Taylor.

School officials say his teaching methods keep students interested. "When the students enjoy the course, they pay attention, they're engaged in the course and he's got interactive things that encourage students to participate and get involved in the course," said V.P. of Economic Development Gary Pitts.

The course includes 30-hours of classroom instruction and six optional hours of on-the-road experience. The class costs $199 and runs from July 18th to the 21st.

To sign up call 227-2579.
