Latest Information

Behind-the-Wheel

BTW has started back July 13 with a reduced work force and we will proceed as scheduled prior to the closure.  We will work through each class session based on age within the class, oldest to youngest.  As you all know, this situation has compromised everyone’s typical schedules and processes.

  • We are currently working with February students, and then will proceed through the original rosters that were completed remotely during the months of May, June, and July.  The process is expected to take some time, especially with the advent of “school day hours” and time requirements of teachers and students alike
  • Sometimes a younger student is scheduled prior to an older one due to answering the phone or general availability for a time sensitive schedule.  If you have a phone setting that does not allow your phone to ring with an unrecognized number, you might want to turn it off.  
  • Each driver has been trained on safety protocols and has specific directions to follow that are not negotiable.  The driver will review those expectations with you and everyone will be required to follow them.
  • Students should dress appropriately for the in-car setting – close-toed shoes and appropriate clothing for the close environment. 
  • If your child has a valid Driving Eligibility Certificate (DEC) issued by their school that was dated between Feb. 9, 2020 and March 10, 2020, that certificate will be accepted by the Division of Motor Vehicles for up to 30 days after all DMV offices have been reopened.
  • The DEC can be issued to you via the Student Services Offices by appointment only.  
  • Required DMV Vision Checks have been offered in June and in July at 6 area sites, two days each month.  There will be one more offered in August, prior to the “return to school”.  

Classroom

We completed all spring scheduled sessions through online instruction.  

  • There are no additional “summer” classes planned and registration for the “school year” has not yet begun.  Once we know how to proceed based on WCPSS fall 2020 plans, available trained personnel, and appropriate in-place procedures, Jordan Driving School will open the registration process.  
  • Students are placed in a class based on age, with the oldest students given priority.  The fee is $65.00, payable online, and covers the classroom and the BTW lessons.  The certificate of completion is provided at the conclusion of BTW.
  • Required DMV Vision Checks have been offered in June and in July at 6 area sites, two days each month.  There will be one more offered in August, prior to the “return to school”.  

Who We Teach

Jordan Driving School teaches Driver Education safety to students who are between the ages of 14 ½ years old up to 18 years of age, and are actively enrolled in a public, private, charter, or licensed home schools within Wake County. Students who are 18 years old, but are still enrolled in high school may take Driver Education with Jordan Driving School, but will need to take additional steps to be able to participate in the behind the wheel portion of the program.

Age eligible students in Wake County who attend a middle school, private school, charter school or home school may sign up for any after school class at a public high school If their schedule permits; however, students MUST be able to arrive to class on time each day, no exceptions.

We do not provide any adult driver education courses.
