     Additional Information:

    Driver Eligibility Certificates are valid for 30 days from the date of validation.

    Please submit completed driver eligibility certificate to DMV before the 30-day
    deadline.  If you know you are not going to DMV within 30 days or you are not
    going to be 15 years old within 30 days, please wait until you are ready to get
    your learner’s permit before starting this process.

    Students must pass 3 or 4 courses in the last semester in order to obtain a
    validation seal on the driver eligibility certificate.  Final marks in courses are
    checked.  Nine weeks grades are NOT used for validation.  If you fail two or
    more courses or you drop out of school before your 18th birthday, you will
    NOT get your driver eligibility certificate validated and your license or permit
    will be revoked by the State.

    Please follow these steps in obtaining your Driver Eligibility Certificate:
    After completing both the classroom and driving phases of driver’s education,

    students need to take their driver education certificate to the main office.
    o A parent and/or guardian must review and sign the certificate in the
    presence of the school official who will then date and seal the certificate.
    o The student must present his/her Driver’s Education Certificate when
    applying for the Driver Eligibility Certificate.
    o Lost certificates must be replaced by JDS Carolinas, Inc. - There is a
