Driver's Education Updates 7-26-20

  • Basic information: Students must be at least 14 years, 6 months old to take a Driver Education class. Students are required to complete 30 hours in the driver education classroom and 6 hours behind the wheel instruction. Driver education classes are scheduled throughout the school year, and during the summer. Behind the wheel driving is conducted after school between 3pm and 9pm, and from 6am until 9pm on Saturdays, during the summer and any time students are out of school. Students are driven by age, oldest called first, after completing the classroom phase of driver education.

    Students are also required by the NCDMV and dropout prevention services to pass at least 3 of 4 classes at SRHS to obtain or maintain a learner´s permit or a driver license. You may take driver education without meeting the 3 of 4 passing requirement, however, you will not satisfy the driver eligibility rules until you pass 3 of 4 classes. Driver eligibility certificates are validated by Student Services.

    Classroom Registration: The cost to take Drivers Education is $65. Registration and payment must be made online. A schedule of classes will be added soon.

    Eye Examination Schedule: DMV representative, is scheduled to visit Southeast driver education classes (room 2204) to check the eyes of the students. If you were in a previous class and had a medical form issued to you or an 804 form to take to your eye doctor, you are encouraged to come back to class on one of these dates to update your paperwork. Please inform Coach Baker when you plan to come back to get your eyes rechecked. Students cannot drive until all vision examination paperwork is complete and signed by DMV Representative.

    Behind the Wheel Training: If you finished the classroom phase at least 6 weeks ago and have not been called to drive, please contact Coach Baker to discuss your situation ( If you did not pass the eye exam or get your eyes checked during class, you cannot do the BTW training and will not be called to drive until that is done. Check above to see the eye examination schedule to see when the DMV Representative will be scheduled to be on campus.

    Behind the Wheel Instructors: Please be aware that these are the drivers that most likely will be calling you to drive. Each is responsible for creating his own driving schedule, so please work with them when called for BTW instruction. If you are driving during the summer or break, you may be called by another Jordan Driving School personnel.

    Contact Information: Please contact the driver education lead teacher at Southeast Raleigh High School, John Baker, if you have any questions or concerns that this website cannot answer.

    Other Questions and Concerns: Please visit the NCDMV website for driver license information or the WCPSS Drivers Education page and the Jordan Driving School website, for additional information.
