Driver's Education Information

Driver Education Classes are taught five or six times during the school year based on a student’s 15th birthday.

Announcements are made a week prior to traditional classes starting for students to sign up. Sign up information will be available in the guidance office when classes are announced.

Students are generally enrolled in classes prior to their 15th birthday. Online classes are taught throughout the school year. Online information can be found on the link below to Mountain Professional Incorporated.

If you are a homeschool or private school student (living in the West district), you may call the school for traditional classes or check the online classes.

Traditional classes are taught from 6:45 – 7:45 AM with a few afternoon classes being taught from 3:10-5:10.

Our classes are taught using the American Driver and Traffic Safety Curriculum and the North Carolina Standard Curriculum guide.
