Bedford Community Education is following State directives and safety protocols. Schedules for in-person programs and activities will be posted when we can safely resume classes. Some programs may return sooner than others based on our ability to adapt them to meet the current safety requirements.

Our office remains closed to the public. But you can contact us via phone or email. Please continue to look for updates on this page and connect with us via Facebook. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

We are once again scheduling new drivers for the Michigan Road Skills Test, call 734-850-6036 and leave a message. You will be called within 2 business days to schedule a test and be given instructions on dropping off documents and payment.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate through COVID-19. Remain safe and be well.
