• DMV DRIVER ELIGIBILITY CERTIFICATES (DEC)

    • DMV Eligibility Certificates (DEC) are issued to the parents/guardians or students through the Front Office. (See below for information)

     

    DECs are only valid for 30 days. Students are only eligible to receive a DEC when they have obtained a Driver's Education Completion Certificate and passed 70% of their classes last semester. 

    Per NC Legislation, students are required to have passed 70% or 3 out of 4 classes last semester in order for a Driving Eligibility Certificate to be issued. 
    NC Legislation requires a student's permit be revoked if the student is unable to maintain adequate progress towards graduation (passing 70% of all courses as determined by first semester and second semester grades....not quarter grades) or if a student drops out of school.
