                  Act of Aug. 1, 1963, P.L. 460, No. 245              Cl. 24
                                  AN ACT

     Providing for the establishment of driver improvement schools,
        and imposing powers and duties on the county or city council
        in cities of the first class, the superintendent of schools
        in counties of the first class and the county superintendent
        of schools in counties of the second to eighth class, the
        Commissioner of Traffic Safety and the Secretary of Revenue.

        The General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania
     hereby enacts as follows:

        Section 1.  Any county or city of the first class may
     establish a driver improvement school where motor vehicle
     operators, residing in the county or city of the first class,
     may attend or where operators, residing in other counties or
     cities, may attend when approval is given by the administrators
     of the school. The purpose of the school shall be for the giving
     of instruction in the operation of motor vehicles and for
     generally improving the driving habits of the operators
     attending.
        Section 2.  Such school shall be established by the county
     commissioners subject to the approval of a majority of the
     judges of the court of common pleas, except that in cities of
     the first class such school shall be established by city
     council.
        Section 3.  Such school shall be under the direction of the
     county superintendent of schools, except in cities of the first
     class where it shall be under the direction of the
     superintendent of schools. The superintendent shall have the
     power and the duty to hire instructors, but the cost of
     operation shall be on the county or city as the case may be.
        Section 4.  When such a school is established, the Secretary
     of Revenue, through the Commissioner of the Bureau of Traffic
     Safety, shall provide the superintendent with a list of
     operators residing within the county or city of the first class
     who are subject to suspension of their operating privileges.
     When the Secretary of Revenue, through the Commissioner of the
     Bureau of Traffic Safety, sends a notice of suspension to a
     person residing in a county or a city of the first class that
     has established such a school, he shall indicate that it is in
     operation, and if the person successfully completes the course
     and receives a certificate indicating the same from the
     superintendent, consideration for a waiver of the suspension
     will be given. No list shall be provided and no notices shall be
     sent when the operator's privileges are subject to revocation.
        Section 5.  Any order of the Secretary of Revenue suspending
     the driving privilege of any operator shall be superseded for a
     period not exceeding thirty days upon notice that the person has
     enrolled in a driver improvement school with the consent of the
     Secretary of Revenue prior to the beginning of the suspension
     period, but the order shall be reinstated immediately upon
     notice to the Secretary of Revenue that the person has dropped
     out of the course or that he has not successfully completed the
     same. If a person has received a notice of suspension and he
     successfully completes the course and receives a certificate
     indicating the same, notice thereof shall be sent to the
     Secretary of Revenue who shall then take this fact into
     consideration in determining whether to waive the pending
     suspension or not. No person shall have the privilege of
     attending the school more than three times.
        Section 6.  The standards for establishing the school, the
     length of the course, the content of the curriculum and other
     details shall be established by the Secretary of Revenue, the
     county superintendent of schools, or the superintendent of
     schools in cities of the first class, and the county
     commissioners or city council. These persons may designate other
     persons who are to be consulted in the establishment and
     operation of the school.
