The North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) requires 30 hours of classroom instruction and six hours of behind-the-wheel training. All Durham County students who are at least 14 ½ years old and under age 18 and enrolled in a public, private, charter or home school are eligible to take driver education in Durham Public Schools.
Students wishing to take driver education must be eligible to receive a driver eligibility certificate. Students who have failed two or more courses the previous semester are not eligible to take driver education.
Once students complete Driver's Education, they can schedule an appointment with Mrs. Machak to receive a Driver's Eligibility certificate. Certificates are only valid for 30 days, so please ensure your appointment is scheduled prior to requesting a certificate.
