Driver’s Education Information
Parent/Student Guide to the NC Graduated Driver’s & License Laws and Driver Education
A child must be fourteen years and 6 months of age in order to take a certified driver education course.
Due to the nature of the Graduated Licensing Law, it is strongly recommended they schedule their class prior to the fifteenth birthday.
North Carolina law requires all students to have thirty (30) hours of classroom instruction. The law further requires six (6) hours of driving instruction and six (6) hours of observation in the vehicle with another student.
Students may be driven during their scheduled Physical Education Class, after school, on Saturdays or holidays. The instructors will advise your child about their individual schedule at the appropriate time. Classes are scheduled at the discretion of the individual schedule at the appropriate time. They may be held before or after school. The summer schedule allows classes to be held up to four hours per day.
