Students who are 18 years old, but are still enrolled in a public, private, charter or licensed home school may still take Driver Education. After completing the class, the student must obtain their permit before they will be able to complete the behind the wheel training. Those students who are 18 years old or older will need to have their NC permit with them when they drive with our instructor.
If you are not enrolled in the school system but are over the age of 18, NCDS offers private driving lessons in certain areas. Please contact the NCDS office to find out if we can assist you in your specific county. The fee is $120 per session with each session lasting 2 hours. Please complete and return the private contract found here. We will process your payment and have an instructor call you to schedule your driving. Our instructor can pick up and drop off at your residence and is able to work around your schedule according to your needs.
