Winter Driver Education 30 Hour Theory Course

January 9 – February 8, 2024

Dwight-Englewood School (D-E) is once again offering a Winter Driver Education Theory Course. Driver’s Ed at D-E School is administered in-person through D-E 360° in partnership with FNL Driving School, to high school students at least 15 years old as of January 1, 2024. Students must also reside in New Jersey. This in person course is given by Mrs. Nancy Lustenberger, formerly of the D-E Physical Education Department. The course fulfills the requirement of the New Jersey State written exam.

The course is limited to 50 participants. Questions about this Driver’s Ed course offered by FNL may be directed by Email to:, or visit their website at:


If both behind-the-wheel and classroom courses are taken, the student is eligible for a reduction in auto insurance until the age of 21. Students must complete six (6) hours of behind-the-wheel instruction, which may be arranged independently with Mrs. Lustenberger, in order to earn a learner’s permit by the age of 16.  Students are required to have their driver’s permit for a minimum of six months and have turned the age of 17, before they can be eligible to get their license. Those who already have a permit, but did not complete a classroom course, can enroll to receive a certificate toward their automobile insurance reduction.
