Driving School Schedule

Driving School is always held on a Monday night from 6:00-10:00pm.  The date will depend on what is available at the time of your registration.  

Please contact the court office if you have any questions, we do not accept any type of online Driving School class and there must be special permission from the judge to take another class other than the class available through the Athens Municipal Court.
