Online Asynchronous classes, such as, dmvedu.org, etc., are not accepted as a valid Driver Education course in the state of NC.



Be sure to read all the information.

You should start planning when your student is near 14 1/2 years of age. Consider extra-curricular activities when planning.  Contact coaches and other after-school activities supervisors to avoid scheduling conflicts. All class registration is non-refundable and not transferable to other classes.  Please make sure your student is able to attend classes that they have signed up for.  Once classes are full, transfers are NOT permitted due to class seating requirements and instructor: student ratios.

Classes are identified as in-person or online on the registration site in the Online School Payment System. 
Be sure you are 
choosing the right fit for your student.

If a student is disruptive or falls asleep during class, they will either be asked to leave class and need to make up the time or be permanently removed from the class.



In Person Classes at Pinecrest and Union Pines High Schools will be live streamed.

Online Classes:

The instructors for online classes will email orientation material for their class approximately 10 days prior to the beginning date of the class. If you do not receive this email please contact the coordinator at [email protected]. During the traditional school year, classes run for 3 hours and begin at 4:30 pm. Virtual classes will have live instruction for the duration of the 30 class hours.
All FINAL exams will be taken in person
Students that do not have their camera on during the class will be considered absent during the time their camera is off and will need to make up time. If any time missed is over 3 hours, the student will need to retake the class. Please make sure you are an active 
participant during class time.

General Information


To participate in Moore County Schools Driver Education, students aged 14 1/2 (prior to the first day of class) to 18 (must be under 18) must register online or submit a Fee Reduction application (see "register" section).  Students MUST reside in Moore County.

**Summer and Spring Break Addendum Information
Classes are scheduled from 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday – Thursday.  Bring lunch, snacks and pencil/paper. Class location will be disclosed prior to class start dates.


Instructor will need to see Social Security card and certified birth certificate or other Proof of ID before a student can take the driving portion of Driver Education. We do not copy or keep the documentation.  It is for verification only.  No copies allowed.

Students may miss no more than 3 hours of class time. If more than 3 hours is missed, the student will be dismissed from class and will need to retake the class. Missed time (under 3 hours) must be made up after the final exam.  Multiple times may be missed, but not more than 3 hours total.

Class Schedules are subject to change. If the schedule is changed, the scheduled school will make an announcement or the instructor will notify students. Classes are not held on early dismissal days, teacher workdays or if school activities are canceled because of inclement weather or other unforeseen circumstance.

Intervals between Classroom and Behind the Wheel (BTW) Instruction

We are averaging between 10-16 weeks in between Classroom and Behind the Wheel Instruction.
Please keep in mind that with 35 students in a class, that is 210 drive hours for all students to complete the behind the wheel portion per class. An instructor will reach out to you to schedule as soon as they are able.


Older students are given priority to schedule BTW instruction. Remember that vision testing and credential submission is the “starting point” for entering the BTW queue.

“Helpful Hint”: Have your student take a picture of their completed Form 800 for later reference and tracking! 

Please make sure students are adhering to the school dress code policy during class and the Behind the Wheel portion of the program.  Failure to dress appropriately could result in rescheduling training time.

We are not responsible for missed DMV appointments made in advance of your child receiving BTW instruction.

What do I need to have my child bring to THEIR SCHOOL PRIOR to their DMV appointment, for their permit?
If you attend Connect Virtual Academy - please go to West Pine Elementary School - CVA office is located in their building.
If you homeschool or attend a verified online school - you will need to obtain an eligibility certificate from the NC Department of Non Public Education.

  1. N.C. Driving Eligibility Certificate, signed by a parent/ legal guardian (BTW instructor will give to the students after successful completion of the program)
  2. Driver's License Eligibility Issues form, signed by a parent/ legal guardian AND the student (BTW instructor will  give to the students after successful completion of the program)
  3. Certificate of Completion  (BTW instructor will give to the students after successful completion of the program)

  5. School Fees Paid (Moore County Schools only)
