Driver Education Classroom

 

*Please note that if you register for a class and are offered a seat in the class and you decide not to take the class or are a no show you will be dropped from the class and will not be given a seat until six months later. This also applies if you are dismissed from the class for any reason. We cannot work around extracurricular activities. We are an extracurricular activity. If in doubt DO NOT SIGN UP. We have many students wanting a seat in the driver education classes. This means you took a seat that could have gone to another student. If you have been given two previous seats you are ineligible to take driver education.*

Behind-the-Wheel Sessions

 

Scheduling behind-the-wheel training has become fluid due to quarantining of schools, instructors, and students. Some have been quarantined more than once. Once a student has completed ALL of the classroom requirements and paid the driver education fee it has been taking about eight weeks before a student is scheduled to drive.

 

FAQ

 

Why has my child not been scheduled to drive? He or she has taken the classroom portion already.

 

The student usually hasn't paid the $65 driver education fee to the high school in a timely manner (while the class was being taught).

The student hasn't passed all the necessary tests for the class.

The student hasn't completed the DMV time requirement for the class (30 hours).

The student hasn't come to the DMV eye check that was scheduled for that class.

 

If you have paid the driver education fee after the classroom is over please email me a copy of the receipt so that I can update my records, otherwise the record my continue to show that the fee needs to be paid.
