Information about the classroom portion of Driver’s Education
There are two more sessions available for the Driver's Ed classroom portion this semester. Both classes will open for registration at the same time. Make sure your student knows which class to sign up for on the day of registration, as each class only holds 40 students and there will be no switching of classes because they fill up quickly. The date of birth range for both classes will be from 12/9/01 to 4/26/05. Class sessions are:
- October 26 and November 2, 9, 16, 23 (Saturday class) – 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
- December 2-18 (after school, no class on Fridays) – 3:20 to 6:20
Remember that students must attend every class to be eligible to pass. You will need to fill out a Restricted Instruction Permit in black ink (other colors/pencil are not accepted by NC Driving School) and submit a $65 non-refundable fee for the class. You may bring cash or check made out to FFHS. If you do not have access to a printer, there are copies of the form available in the front office. REGISTRATION OPENS THURSDAY, OCTOBER 17, at 8 A.M. IN THE FRONT OFFICE. NC Driving School is solely responsible for scheduling the driving portion of the course and can be reached at 1-800-375-6550. For more information or questions on this program, please email Eileen McKenna at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Classroom instruction will be a minimum of 30 hours. All scheduled classes must be attended. No tardiness or early
dismissals will be allowed. The school building doors are locked for security. To pass the classroom portion, students must score 70% or higher on the exit exam and have attended all scheduled classes. Failure to pass the classroom portion prohibits the student from receiving behind-the-wheel instruction.
Absolutely no misconduct or horseplay will be tolerated. Instructors have the right to dismiss a student from class on
any day of the classroom instruction. Adult behavior is required. Students who cannot follow directions in class will not
be able to follow directions in the car. Students that are dismissed from the driver education class due to behavior or attendance issues will not be eligible to re-enroll until the following school year.
Absolutely no tobacco or alcohol products allowed during class or on school campus, before class or after class. This will
result in immediate dismissal from class. Cell phones should NOT be seen or heard during class. 1st occurrence, the phone will be taken and given back at the end of class; 2nd occurrence, the student will be dismissed from class.
Students must stay in designated areas indicated by the instructor at all times. Please remember we are GUESTS; there
is to be NO roaming of the hallways. Students located in areas not designated by the instructor will be dismissed.
Students are not dismissed from class until the instructor dismisses the class. Transportation home must be available within 15 minutes after the dismissal of class. No loitering on campus.
Participating in a driver education course is a privilege, NOT a right. Driving is a legal privilege and responsibility.
