    Eye Examination

    DMV representative is scheduled to visit Middle Creek during one of each classroom session to check student’s vision medications. If a student receives a medical or vision form from a DMV representative to take to your doctor, the student must visit his/her doctor and return the paperwork to the Driver Education department. A student may be required to revisit the DMV representative at school. Students cannot drive until all vision and medical paperwork is completed and signed by DMV representative.

    Behind the Wheel Training

    Once all classroom requirements are completed, students will be assigned a driving instructor to schedule your behind the wheel driving training. The behind the wheel instructor is responsible for calling and scheduling students to drive. When called, please remember to write down your driving instructor’s name and number, driving schedule, place to meet and to be picked up. You must provide your own transportation to and from driving sessions. All cell phones and any other devices by students MUST BE OFF in the car during driver training. Please be patient as we attempt to drive students as quickly as possible.

    Driver Eligibility Certificate

    Students are required by the North Carolina Department of Motor Vehicle and dropout prevention services to pass at least 3 of 4 classes per semester at MCHS to obtain a Driver Eligibility Certificate. This form is needed to obtain or maintain a learner’s permit or a driver's license. You may take driver education without meeting the 3 of 4 passing requirements; however, you will not satisfy the driver eligibility rules until you pass 3 of 4 classes (meaning you will not get your permit). Driver’s Eligibility Certificates are validated by the Registrar at MCHS. Once validated, the Driver’s Eligibility Certificate is only good for 30 days. You must bring your certificate from the driving school, your birth certificate, and your last semester report card in order to get your Driver's Eligibility Certificate.
