Did your Driver's Eligibility Certificate expire? Do you need a Driver's Eligibility Certificate signed?

Attention New Tech Scholars!

Did your Driver's Eligibility Certificate expire? Do you need a Driver's Eligibility Certificate signed? Follow these steps:

Step 1: Schedule an appointment at the DMV.  Due to COVID19, the DMV is no longer accepting walk-in appointments; you must schedule an appointment first with the DMV. Click on the link or give them a call.

Step 2: Send an email request to Ms. Hyman at anissa_hyman@dpsnc.net. Let her know you need a signed Eligibility Certificate. Include the date of the upcoming appointment in the email.  PLEASE NOTE: Students must have passed 3 out of 4 classes (2nd semester) before Ms. Hyman will sign the certificate.

If you failed two or more classes, you will have to wait until January 2021 when your 1st-semester grades will be reviewed and meet the eligibility requirements.

 Step 3: Confirm your mailing address.  It should match the address in PowerSchool.

Once Ms. Hyman signs the certificate, it is only valid for 30 days. Knowing the date will let her know when to place it mail ahead of your appointment. Do not go to New Tech for a signature.  The building is closed to the public and certificates can only be mailed home.
