    Driver and Traffic Safety Education involves all those learning experiences provided for the purpose of helping students learn to use motor vehicles safely, efficiently and effectively.

    This objective is achieved through sequences of interrelated experiences involving both classroom (Phase 1) and behind-the-wheel (Phase 2) instruction.  As mandated by the state of North Carolina, students who are under the age of 18 must complete a minimum of thirty (30) hours of classroom instruction and six (6) hours of behind-the-wheel instruction. 

    Students who are 18 years or older are not required to take driver education and may apply for a learner's permit or driver license at any NC DMV office.

  • How do I obtain a Driver Eligibility Certificate (DEC)?

    Posted by:

    The Driver Eligibility Certificate (DEC) is issued by the principal, or his/her designee, of the school that you attend.  The DEC is only valid for thirty (30) days, so do not request one if you are not going to apply for your learner's permit within 30 days.

    If you are home schooled, you must contact the Division of Non-Public Education in Raleigh, NC at 919-733-4276.
