Students wishing to take Driver Education must be eligible to receive a driver eligibility certificate. Students who have failed two or more classes the previous semester are not eligible to take Driver Education.
To take Driver Education with Durham Public Schools, a student must be in one of these categories:
Attend a Durham Public School high school
Attend a private school located in Durham
Attend a registered "home school" located in Durham.
A student must be 14 ½ years of age on the first day of class.
DPS will use an "online" payment system for the $45 fee for Driver Education fee. The fee will be paid by credit card or debit card. Students who do not have a credit or debit card may obtain one from a store. However, students need to remember that some places will charge a service fee for the card and need to add that to the amount put on the card.
Students dismissed from a Driver Education class due to behavior or attendance problems will not be allowed to take Driver Education a second time through Durham Public Schools.
Did your Driver's Eligibility Certificate expire? Do you need a Driver's Eligibility Certificate signed?
Come by the DST Main Office to receive a signed certificate. You must have an appointment at the DMV (or walk in within the next 30 days) before Ms. Hyman will sign your certificate.
