    August 11, 2021 Driver Education Update      drobinson5@wcpss.net

    **Registration for fall classroom is not yet active and will not be available until mid-September. Please do not submit or request registration materials. 

     

    Fall registration should be available at www.jordandriving.com once decisions have been finalized for return to face-to-face, after-school instruction.  Students will be placed in the class based on age.   We will begin classroom sessions in Wake County with the November session which will run 2:30-5:30 for 10 days. 

     

    Behind-the-Wheel:

    • As mentioned previously, BTW will take place from Panther Creek in 6 months after the classroom session concludes. All school year students county-wide must be scheduled for BTW, prior to moving to summer students. 
    • The Panther Creek drivers are still scheduling February students put on BTW rosters, organized by date of birth.
    • With school beginning soon, BTW will be limited to after school and Saturdays again.
    • Once BTW concludes, the driver will issue a Certificate of Completion.  Please review it carefully for correct spelling and all other information BEFORE you leave the lesson.
    • DMV Eligibility Certificates (DEC) are issued through the student services office and can be picked up by the student or/parent.  You will need to show your copy of the certificate of completion referenced above.  
    • PRIVATE BTW Instruction: will be self-funded and info is available or paperwork can be requested by your driving school from JDS per directions here:  In-Out-Transfers

     

    Legislative Update DMV:  Senate Bill 69 (DMV Licensing Requirements) was signed into law today by Governor Cooper as Session Law 2021-24. The bill reduces from 12 months to six months that time that a person who is at least 16 years old but less than 18 years old must hold a limited learner’s permit before obtaining a limited provisional driver’s license. It applies to applications for licenses submitted on or after 24 May 2021, but expires on 31 December 2021. A copy of SL2021-24 is linked below.  Please review to understand any applications that may related to your novice driver.
