In response to growing demand on Aquidneck Island, the Community College of Rhode Island (CCRI) is now offering driver’s ed training at the Newport County Campus, 1 John Chafee Blvd.
CCRI is offering week-long driver’s ed training throughout July and August, with the expectation to expand to nights/weekends during the fall. A full schedule of classes can be found at ccri.edu/ workforce. Maximum capacity is 30 students per class.
CCRI is the largest driver’s ed provider in Rhode Island, and the only provider able to administer the RI-DMV permit test as part of the driver’s ed course, expediting the time between completing the class and getting a learner’s permit.
