Basic Information
  • At its August 5, 2013 meeting, the Harnett County Schools Board of Education approved
    a $55 charge for any student who takes Driver Education.  Due to significant reduction in State
    funding for the program, the General Assembly provided a provision in law to allow school districts
    to impose this charge.
  • Students must be at least 14 years, 6 months old to register for 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, on Saturdays and during the summer.
  • The State created an additional provision for 2015-16 allowing students to obtain a waiver
    if they feel they are unable to pay the fee associated with driver education. For further information
