Drivers Education Information

    • is designed and dedicated to prepare our students for a lifetime skill that greatly enhances their quality of life

     Driver's Education Goals:

    The goal of Driver Education is to provide each student driver a start in psychomotor skills and mental attitudes that are essential to becoming the most competent, skillful, responsible driver possible. This serves as a base for parents to continue the instruction and supervision of their young driver in developing the necessary knowledge, skill, and attitude needed to become a safe driver. **Communication with parents/guardians is an important key in accomplishing this goal.

    • Be at least fourteen and a half years of age, but not more than seventeen years of age.
    • Pay $65 as required by the NC General Assembly in HB 200. Process for payment of fee will be included on all registration forms. No cash or personal checks.

    Driving Schedules: 

    While we do look at age in booking/calling students, it is not guaranteed that the process will work only by, “oldest to youngest” when scheduling.

    Instructors will call parents individually to discuss the Behind the Wheel appointment options.

    Please be sure to review the no-show policy on the Information Form received at the parent meeting.
