-PLEASE LIST SEVENTY FIRST HIGH SCHOOL as your child’s Driver Education school. (All DNA students who are accepted by Program Director, Henry Geddie, will train on the campus of 71st High School - as that is DNA’s partner school for this program).

 

Once your child has completed and PASSED Driver Education, 

the Driver Eligibility Certificate (DEC) is issued by the principal, or his/her designee, of the school that you attend.  

 

The DEC is only valid for thirty (30) days, so do not request one if you are not going to apply for your learner's permit within 30 days.

Home schooled students 

 must contact the Division of Non-Public Education in Raleigh, NC at 919-733-4276.

 

-Qualifications to enroll, in case your child missed signing up with Principal Reaves, are listed below and will be posted to DNA’s website effective 1/20/22.

 

In accordance with General Statute 20-88.1, Driver Education is to be offered at the public high schools of this state for all physically and mentally qualified persons who:


🛑Are older than 14 years and six months of age;
🛑Are approved by the principal of the school;
🛑Are enrolled in a public school, private school or home school within the county
🛑Have not previously enrolled in the program.

 

A birthdate cut off for each session will be posted before registration. 

 

 


Cumberland County Schools will no longer allow a student to enroll in a Driver Education course if the student has previously attended more than 4 hours of the classroom phase and dropped out or failed the course.


By North Carolina Law, students who are 18 years old or older are not required to take Driver Education.  They may apply for a learner’s permit or license at any NC DMV office. However, they may register for the 30 hours of classroom instruction but must secure an NC Learner’s Permit before they are scheduled for the 6 hours of behind-the-wheel instruction.

 

🚙HAPPY DRIVING, students!🚗
