    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.

    Driving Schedules: 

    Gov. Cooper has approved the start of driver education “on road” training.  Once DPI gives the official start date, BCS will begin to call students to discuss appointment options. The process will begin with the 130 March students that completed class but were put on hold due to COVID 19.

    • Though age is consider in booking/calling students, it is not guaranteed that the process will work only by, “oldest to youngest” when scheduling.
    • Instructors will call parent/guardian to discuss the Behind the Wheel appointment options.


    Virtual Class has been approved to restart classes. A new registration form is attached below. If this registration is not workable due to age requirements or schedule conflicts please continue to check this page for additional class options as we continue the restart process.
