Registration will begin on Saturday, March 11, at 9:00 am. Once the allotted slots are filled, the registration will close. 

Classes will begin on April 3rd and end on April 25th. Classes will meet Monday - Friday, excluding holidays.

Students may register for one of the following classes.

  • Morning Class  6:30am - 8:30am
  • Evening Class 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

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 must remember that some places will charge a service fee for the card and must 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.
