All students actively enrolled in Wake County public, private or home school or live in Wake County are eligible to attend a Saturday Driver Education course in Wake County as long as they meet the following criteria:

Please read carefully and follow directions to avoid issues.
Sheltered Enrollment for Students in Verifiable Extra-Curricular Commitments
Must provide official proof confirming involvement in scholastic activities that prevent enrollment in after-school driver education classroom sessions.
Inability to provide official documentation will result in removal from this sheltered class, along with a full refund.
Documentation should appear on official letterhead with appropriate personnel’s contact information – email and phone number, and be submitted through email to after students online registration is complete.

The guidelines to register for Driver Education are as follows:

  • Read the entire registration page to make sure you meet the eligibility criteria for Driver Education and understand the registration process as we are piloting a new registration program.
  • Students are only allowed to take the class at the high school they attend or the designated location as determined by Jordan Driving School if classes are not held at their school. 
  • See class description for specifics on what day registration opens for your student. Dates are subject to change. Students must be at least 14.5 years of age on or before the first day of class to be eligible to register for any class in NC. Students are registered on a first come first serve basis.   
  • Should you have any questions please email the lead driver education teacher for the school location to which you are applying. You will find a list of Lead Teacher’s Contact Information, including email address and phone number, by clicking HERE. Jordan Driving School employs a Lead Teacher at each school who is responsible for assigning students to Driver Education classes at their school. 
  • In the State of North Carolina, there is a $65 fee to enroll in Driver Education class. This fee paid by parents covers only the classroom portion of Driver Education. In the State of North Carolina, the behind the wheel portioned is subsidized and is offered to students enrolled in Wake County Schools at no charge one time. There will be no refunds given for students who take a seat in class and dropout or fail. Attendance, behavior, or academic failures are all considered forfeits of your classroom fee. Should the student be allowed to retake the classroom portion, the fee must be paid again.
  • There must be a minimum of 25 students or the class will be cancelled.
