To participate in Moore County Schools Driver Education students 14 1/2 (on the first day of class) thru 18 (must be under 18) must register online or submit a Fee Waiver application(see "register" section).  Also, students MUST be enrolled in school in Moore County, whether public school, private school, home school, or charter school.  Or, students must live in Moore County. (We are funded based on enrollment in the above types of schools)

Please be advised that we do not accept "walk-ins" and there is no "wait list". In the rare event that there are last minute openings, they are given to students who need special consideration as specified by law. 

We are often asked why we do not offer more classes. We offer enough classes to meet the needs of our student population and simply cannot afford to offer classes that are not full. You should start planning when a student is near 14-1/2 years of age. Consider extra curricular activities as well when planning.  Contact coaches and other after-school activities supervisors to avoid scheduling conflicts.


The information on this site is broken down in three sections:
