GENERAL
INFORMATION
 Skill level and driving ability will vary from one student to another. Once the mandated
six (6) hours are completed the permit is signed over to the student regardless of the
student’s driving ability. This is not a pass or fail course. Parents should be patient
and understand that the student is a beginner. Parents have a minimum of six (6)
months to practice with their teen. Driving requires commitment and discipline from
every student and parent or guardian.
Mandatory for 16 year olds only. If you are 17
years or older you go to DMV on your own to get your permit and test.
