The student must spend fourteen hours in the car, seven driving and seven observing. Driving may continue several weeks after class is completed. To schedule by phone with Debra, leave a message and you will get a return call. If driving is scheduled on the same day as class the student will be here for four hours.
-->Students should show up at least ten minutes before their driving time with their permit.
-->NO FLIP FLOPS.
-->Any student who cannot make a scheduled driving time must call at least eight hours in advance and cancel. **If a student does not call eight hours prior to his driving time, there will be a $20.00 cancellation charge.**
-->The seventh driving time is the driving test. Students will take another driving test at the DPS when they go for their drivers license. Students, in our opinion, who are not ready to pass the test will be advised of weakness and the lesson will be postponed. We will not rush the student through the driving process.
-->The seven behind the wheel hours a student receives from us sets a foundation of skills, but the student will advance faster with practice at home. It is our feeling that a student should accumulate fifty hours before driving alone. Feel free to call and check on the student’s progress at any time.

Obtaining a Permit
After a student has completed six hours (the first three days) of classroom instruction, he or she may obtain a permit.
The following will be needed at the DPS or at the school:
Application (filled out in black ink)
DE 964 form from driving school after completing three days
Social Security Card
T.E.A. or V.O.E. form -- this is a verification of enrollment/attendance in school. This form is good for 30 days during the school year, and if issued the last week of the school year, it is good for the entire summer.
Birth Certificate--This must be an original or certified copy of the student’s State or county birth certificate. Also can be used instead of birth certificate: passport, or resident alien card. **PLEASE NOTE: A hospital birth certificate will not be accepted; must be birth certificate with certified seal.
Two Residency Forms - the parent accompanying the teen to the DPS must bring two proof of residency forms such as bills with current address or voter registration
