Driver's Education Classes and Eligibility

a picture that has the words Driver Education Student Driver

Working in conjunction with North Carolina School of Driving, Clinton High offers Driver's Education Classes for all local students who are 14 1/2 years old and older. We work to schedule all students as they register using the electronic registration system. After successful completion of the 30 hour class, students will be scheduled to drive with one of our instructors. After successful completion of the driving course, students will be issued a Driver's Eligibility Certificate (DEC). The DEC is then presented to any Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) licensure office to receive a driver's permit through the NC Graduated Licensure program. As parents and new drivers, it is YOUR responsibility to remain eligible for a license according to G.S. 20-11. Please refer to the Clinton High Student Handbook for expectations and procedures and to the Forms Section on this page for expanded information as well the related forms.

Classes for the 2024-25 school year are listed below! We will take the first 30 students that register for each class. After the first 30 are registered we will put you on a waiting list for that class. Once registration closes, we will verify registrations and will send out emails 2 weeks prior to class starting. Please regsiter for your class and then your next preferred class!! Class dates and times are listed on the registration form!! Students are NOT allowed to miss any classes!!

8th grade students that are of age may take the face to face class but ARE NOT ALLOWED to take the virtual classes!!
