The student must complete assigned classroom lessons, meet attendance requirements, complete all drive sessions, and achieve a 74.5% overall average on tests given to receive a passing grade.

The student must be 14 ½ years of age to be eligible to take the class.  The student will be issued a Learner’s License (LL) upon passing the state written test, either in the classroom or at the Drivers Service exam station.

At the end of the course the student, if he/she has passed, is eligible to complete the licensing process by taking the on-road driving test at the Drivers Service exam station or in the class course, meeting some requirements that will be discussed at the parent meeting. The applicant must meet the state requirement of 15 years of age.
