    Driving Eligibility Certificates

    A Driving Eligibility Certificate (DEC) is a printed document that is issued by the school principal and/or the principal's designee. The Driving Eligibility Certificate certifies that the student is currently enrolled in school and has demonstrated adequate academic progress toward graduation. According to NCGS20-11(n1), some students are ineligible to receive a Driving Eligibility Certificate. Students expelled, suspended or placed in an alternative educational setting for more than ten (10) consecutive days for possessing or selling alcohol, illegal or controlled substances on school property; bringing, possessing or using a weapon or firearm on school property, pursuant to NCGS 115C-391 (d1); or assaulting any school personnel on school property are ineligible.

    The Driving Eligibility Certificate is valid for only 30 days from the date of issueand isissued only from Mrs. Gay,and or our school Data Manager.  Please call the school and make sure the school DATA MANAGER is avaiable to issue the DEC. An updated certificate is necessary after 30 days of receiving the first one. You must follow the same procedure when requesting the udpate as you did when you requested the first one.  NOTE: Students must be 15 years old to receive this document and be passing their classes both academically and with good attendance.  
     
     
     

    Q: What is the “Adequate Progress” law?
    A: On August 1, 1998 North Carolina’s Dropout Prevention and Adequate Progress Law came into effect. This law was passed to help motivate and encourage better grades and high school completion. Students must pass 70% of their courses to receive or maintain their permit and/or license. This means they must pass five out of six classes on the traditional schedule or three out of four classes on the block schedule.

    If they fail to meet these requirements the Division of Motor Vehicles will be notified and the student’s driving privileges will be revoked until the student provides a Driver Eligibility Certificate, which provides proof that adequate progress has been accomplished. Driver Eligibility Certificates are given to students that complete Driver Education and have met the Adequate Progress rules and regulations. The principal or his/her designee provides these certificates. You cannot receive a Driver Eligibility Certificate from your Driver Education Instructor.

    Behind-the-Wheel News!

    You will receive a call from our BTW teacher to schedule your Behind-the-Wheel (BTW) training.  If a student has taken and passed the classroom portion of Driver Education, and within a reasonable period of time has not been scheduled for BTW, please contact Mrs. Gay at 910-843-4211.  It's possible that the student's contact information (telephone number(s) and home address) may be incorrect and need to be updated.  Also, the student needs to have a vision screening completed by the School Bus and Traffic Safety Division (SBTS) of the DMV which I  (Mrs. Gay) will have to schedule. If your child misses the vision screening set by classroom instuctor, the student will have to wait until the next driver education session.

     Q: When do I actually get to drive?
    A: Students are placed in driving order by their date of birth, oldest to the youngest. You will typically get a call from your instructor within 30 to 90 days after completion of the classroom phase. The behind- the-wheel training generally takes 3 to 4 days to complete. Instructors drive mornings, afternoons, evenings, and on Saturdays. The instructor will do their best to work around any scheduling conflicts you may have. If you have not heard from an instructor within the above time frame, please don’t hesitate to contact our office for assistance.

    Q: What is North Carolina Driving School’s Inclement Weather Policy?

    If your area is experiencing inclement weather conditions, North Carolina Driving School will always abide by the decision made by your local school system.

    Therefore if school is closed then there will be no classroom or behind the wheel sessions that day. If the schools are on a two hour delay then there will be no morning classroom or behind the wheel.

     

    Vision screening is a requirement. As a courtesy, SBTS (School bus transportation) officers visit our classrooms to conduct vision screenings onetime each session.  They also teach a lesson on school bus safety (required part of the course).

    Motorcycle safety is a required part of the 30 classroom hours

     

     Drugs and alcohol instruction are a required part of the 30 classroom hours

    (1) session of instruction with a Highway Patrol and or Police Safety Officer

    If you are absent on the days any of the three above are offered, you will be required to return for the next driver ed session on the days these topics will be covered.   

     

     

    Q: What is the “Graduated Licensing” law?

    Q: What is the “Lose Control Lose Your License” law?
    A:
    When did the law become effective?
    The law became effective July 1, 2000.

    What Does the Law Do?
    The law will suspend a student’s permit or license for one year. The legislation directs public schools, community colleges, and nonpublic schools to notify the North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles whenever a student is given an expulsion/suspension for more than 10 consecutive days or an assignment to an alternative educational setting for more than 10 consecutive days for one of the following reasons:

    1. The possession or sale of an alcoholic beverage or an illegal controlled substance on school property.
    2. The possession or use on school property of a weapon or firearm that resulted in disciplinary action under G.S. 115C-391(d1) or that could have resulted in that disciplinary action if the conduct had occurred in a public school.
    3. The physical assault on a teacher or other school personnel on school property.

    What is School Property?
    The physical premises of the school, school buses or other vehicles under the school’s control or contract and that are used to transport students, and school-sponsored or school-related activities that occur on or off the physical premises of the school.

    How Will DMV Be Notified?
    The State Automated Driver License System (SADLS) will be used to notify DMV.

    Who is Affected By This Legislation?
    Students who are at least 14 years old or who are rising 8th graders on or after July 1, 2000 are subject to this law.
    Note: Students who were issued a N.C. driver’s permit or license before 12/1/1997 or students who are 18 years old cannot be charged under this law. However, the year’s suspension can go beyond a student’s 18th birthday.

    What About Students Who Turn 18?
    “Dropout Prevention/Driver’s License” law that stops when a student turns 18 years old, the “Lose Control” law does not stop at age 18. It is possible for a student to have his or her license suspended as a 17½ year old. If a student is unable to demonstrate exemplary behavior, then he or she will be 18½ before being eligible to drive.
