Janet E. Sherid Theory & Driving School


Licensed Instructor by the Department of Education

Janet E. Sherid has been involved with Driver Education for over 30 years, and has introduced and taught the 30-hour, Driver Theory Course in various communities and school districts, as well as state-funded programs:

  • Norwin School District
  • Ligonier High School
  • Ligonier YMCA
  • Hempfield Park & Recreation
  • Murrysville Park & Recreation, at Franklin Regional
  • Penn-Trafford Park & Recreation
  • Adelphoi Village
  • Private Industry Council of Westmoreland
    & Fayette Counties

Janet Sherid’s involvement in driver’s education for over three decades, and having lost friends in vehicle accidents, has fueled her belief that driver theory is the foundation to building responsible and safe drivers. New drivers—every driver—must understand all the driving laws and adhere to these standards to insure our safety, as well as those who share the roads with us.

Janet E. Sherid continues to offer driver theory courses to those communities where an interest in these programs exists. Due in large part to the changes in academic and extra-curricular demands on students, the times and dates of driver theory class does not always fit into their schedules.

There are various driver theory classes available online, which afford students the ability to learn at their own pace. Parents and new driving students are encouraged to research these online courses for themselves in order to determine which best fits individual needs and financial situations. Janet E. Sherid is not affiliated with any one particular online theory course and does not receive any commission for referrals.

The importance of extensive and thorough driving knowledge and skills is critical, in light of the tragic loss of life experienced in traffic accidents that affects so many schools and families. Inexperience combined with substance impairment, using visually distracting technology, combined with excessive speed and lack of awareness combine to cut short the lives of too many young people.

Having taught courses, it is my opinion that we simply cannot stress enough the importance of driver education. Too often we have experienced the loss of a young person due to traffic accidents. Inexperience as well as the combination of drinking and driving and speed has cut short their lives. Let’s give them every opportunity to become responsible young drivers.
