  • Important Information:

    • To successfully complete the program the students must pass all 3 sections of the class (class, driving, and attitude).
    • Failure to pass all sections of the program will result in an overall failing grade, thus resulting in the student re-registering and taking the program once again.
    • Full fee payment is required for each course taken.
    • All regular school rules and regulations will be enforced in class and during the driving portion.

    Students must obtain a Certified Letter of Compliance (VOC):

    • This is a certified letter that can be obtained from the student's school they are attending. The letter states that the student is enrolled in school and does not have excessive absences/truancies. 
    • The Letter of Compliance process typically takes 1-3 schools days to be completed.
    • The letter is valid for only ninty (90) days from the date of signing.
    • District Policy does not allow it to be faxed.
    • This letter verifies that the student is enrolled in school.  The letter needs to be taken to the DMV.
      *NOTE: "Letters of Compliance" for Session 2 need to be requested from student’s home school by May 31, 2019.
