Restricted Instruction Permit Form (updated December 2019)

 

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.
