    High School Students Need to Pass their Courses to take Driver's Education
    Driver Education Certificate:  This certificate states that you have completed 30 hours of classroom, six hours of drug and alcohol prevention, and six hours of BTW (Behind the Wheel) training. You will use this certificate to obtain a Driver Eligibility Certificate from your school and Level 1 Learner’s Permit from the North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles.
    Driver Eligibility Certificate:  As of August 1, 1998, persons less than 18 years of age applying for a permit or license must have this certificate. This certificate states that the student is passing at least five of six courses in a regular schedule, or three of four courses in a block schedule, and is currently enrolled in school. The certificate is valid for 30 days, and then must be renewed if you do not obtain a learner’s permit within that time.
    Where do I get my Driver Eligibility Certificate?:  At Chatham Center for Innovation, you may obtain your Diver Eligibility Certiicate from our front office staff. Neither Jordan Driving School, the lead Driver Education teacher, nor the instructors issue this certificate. Check with your Counseling Office or school secretary for the contact.
