Driver's Education

ONLINE DRIVER’S EDUCATION COURSES

Please stay tuned to the weekly parent email on Friday afternoon and the school Facebook page for updates on the next driver's ed classes. FFHS is not responsible for scheduling the classes but just facilitates connecting our young drivers with the NC Driving School program. Please note that there are locals in the community who also offer Driver's Ed services.


The NC Driving School will be hosting two sessions of driver education this summer. The dates and times for the class are as follows:

  • 1st Driver's Ed Class: (DOB on or before 12-17-2009) from June 17-28 (Mon-Fri), 8-11 a.m. 
  • 2nd Driver's Ed Class: (DOB on or before 1-29-2010) from July 29-Aug. 9 (Mon-Fri), 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. (This is the class for rising 9th graders)

Students must be present on camera for each day of the entire session. There are 38 spots available for each class. Registration for the classes will be held at FFHS in the Front Office with Mrs. Ewers from Tuesday, May 28th, to Thursday June 6th, or until the class is full.


To register: Print and complete the Restricted Instruction Permit form (linked below) in BLACK INK. Please make sure both the student and parent/guardian have signed the form. Bring the completed, signed form and $65 cash (correct change) or check (made out to FFHS with your phone number on the check) when you register. We cannot hold spots if you forget the form or money.

  • Students must be present on camera for each day of the entire session. Make sure this session fits your schedule, as attendance is required each day for the entire class time. Students will need their Chromebook and charger for class. 
  • Heather with the NC Driving School will send out a Zoom invitation to those who are registered prior to the start of class.  The Zoom invitations are sent to the student’s school email; please check your spam/junk email for the invitation. If you do not receive the invitation please contact Jacqueline Scruggs at 252-548-2221 or scruggsja@daretolearn.org.
  • NC Driving School is solely responsible for scheduling the Behind the Wheel portion of the course. If you have any questions about either portion of Driver's Education, please contact Scruggs at 252-548-2221 or scruggsja@daretolearn.org.  

Restricted Instruction Permit Form (updated December 2022)

 

Classroom instruction will be a minimum of 30 hours. All scheduled classes must be attended. No tardiness or early dismissals will be allowed. 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.

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.

Participating in a driver education course is a privilege, NOT a right. Driving is a legal privilege and responsibility.
