4 EASY STEPS TO ENROLL:
- Pre-apply for a permit or WA State ID Number (if you don’t already have one) @ http://www.dol.wa.gov/driverslicense/preapply.html
- Complete the Enrollment Form (ENROLLMENT FORM CDS). You can either print it, complete it and fax or email the form to us, or enrollment forms are available in the office, if you prefer. If you fax or email the form to us, please remember we must have an original for the file.
- Pay the tuition (or a down payment of at least $150); and we accept cash, checks, or credit (Visa, MasterCard, Discover). We can accept payment by credit card via telephone.
- Go to DOL office to get your permit (no sooner than 10 days prior to class start date)
Washington State Requirements:
- You MUST be at least 15 years old to enroll in a driver’s education class.
- You MUST “Pre-Apply” for your permit on the DOL website @ http://www.dol.wa.gov/driverslicense/preapply.html if you (student) do not have a WA State ID.
- You must have an Instruction Permit and carry it with you at all times to legally practice driving before taking your Driver License Road Test.
- If you are enrolled in Driver’s Education classes (verified by the school) and are 15 years old, you may get your learner’s permit 10 days before the class starts (but no earlier).
- Please note: if you use the”waiver” to get your permit, you must take the Knowledge Test to get your Driver’s License (after you have completed the TSE course and received your Certificate from the driving school).
- If you are 15½, you can get your Learner’s Permit by taking the Knowledge Test at a licensed driver’s training school. Please refer to the Department of Licensing website at http://www.dol.wa.gov/driverslicense/teens.html.
- As part of the Intermediate Driver License Law, parents are required to provide 50 hours “out of class” practice time for their teen drivers, 10 of which must be nighttime driving. We recommend parent involvement with their teen’s driving education and encourage them to read “The Washington Parent Guide to Teen Driving” (downloadable PDF file). This guide helps parents teach good driving habits and has information parents can use to help reduce risk when their teens are driving. Remember, this is only a guide and is not intended to be comprehensive.
- Students must successfully complete the classroom and driving portions of the curriculum before receiving a “Certificate of Completion” from their driving school.
- No enrollment accepted after the 3rd class of any session.
- Classroom tests and the final must be passed with a minimum score of 80%.
- A missed class must be made-up (and as soon as possible).
- If a student misses (and makes up) more than three (3) classes, they are required by law to retake the entire session (15 classes).
