 Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools offers driver education classes to high school students through a private contractor, Jordan Driving School of the Carolinas (JDSC).  Driver Education is considered an after-school activity at the end of the school day.


Once the student completes the classroom portion, they are required to complete 6-hours of Behind the Wheel (BTW) driving.   Students will automatically be added to the driving log.  Assignments for driving will be oldest to youngest and could take 2-3 months.

The NC DMV requirements for Driver Education are:

  1. Student must be 14.5 yrs. Old by the  first day of class

  2. Must complete the 30-hr. Classroom instruction

  3. Complete  the required DMV vision check

  4. Complete 6-hrs. BTW (behind the wheel) driving instruction

  5. Obtain NC Driver Eligibility form from attending school
