Student Driver Car Magnets

Coordinator: Shane and Katherine Gilbert

Did you know? Virginia requires students to complete 45 hours of behind-the-wheel driving with a “qualified” driver before they can obtain a license. For your peace of mind and for those around you: Woodson’s PTSO offers highly visible yellow & black “STUDENT DRIVER” car magnets to post on all sides (driver’s door, passenger door, front & rear) of the vehicle your student drives. You’ll appreciate the added awareness of other drivers to your student’s driving trials and tribulations. You can find these popular car magnets to purchase at major school events or in the Woodson front office.

Cost: $8 each or 3 for $20  (Compare to the online price of $14.95 each, plus shipping)

You may order and pay online at or by contacting Shane or Katherine Gilbert at Get them now so you are prepared for when your student starts driving!

Engraved bricks will be intermixed with regular paver bricks. And, they make great graduation presents for your Seniors!
