    Students will meet with an instructor online everyday during the time that the class is being offered. Students who sign up for this class will need to commit to a set day and time to meet with the instructor every day and to do the assigned work in a timely manner.  Time is TBD and will be sent out through email.
    Please note: Due to Covid, there is a backlog of driving. However, the state has let us begin to drive again and we are well on our way towards catching up. We will make every effort to complete the behind the wheel portion of class as soon as possible for your student. Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding in this matter.


    Cost: The course is $45.00 and must be paid prior to the start of the class. Payments should be made at the front office of NBHS.  Payment verification will be needed before the first class.


    Eye Check: An official with the DMV will be at New Bern High School on a date to be determined in December. (Please keep checking here for the update and your instructor will email you the date as well). If you took a previous online class and missed the eye check, this is also for you. The eye check will take place rain or shine! The instructors can not take you on the road for the behind the wheel portion of class until the eye exam is completed on your restricted instruction permit. If you were mailed the form, please bring Restricted Instruction Permit with you. The location of the eye exam will be at the carpool area (gym entrance) of NBHS under the covered area at the top of the steps. Please wear a mask and observe all social distancing rules.
