Registration forms and a $100 deposit must be turned in to hold a student’s spot in class. Course fee must be paid in full in order to begin class. Classes will be held in an LCA classroom after school so parents do not need to drive students to a separate location for class. Instructors are certified with the Department of Transportation as a Driving Instructor. The curriculum is also state-approved and will thoroughly prepare students for written and road test. All classroom sessions, driving time, and observations must be completed within one year from the course start date. It is the student and parents’ responsibility to schedule driving and observation times with the instructor. They may take place before or after school and possibly Saturdays. A full schedule of availability will be given once course begins. Instructors are able to drop students off at their home after drives and observations to make it convenient for parents.
Other Helpful Information:
Students are not required to have their learner’s permit to begin classroom sessions. However, they must receive their learner’s permit BEFORE they begin the driving portion of the course. In order to receive a permit, the students must go to the Driver’s License Bureau accompanied by their parent or guardian, pay $15 to State of Utah, and pass the written test. Students may take the test 3 times under the first fee. Additional attempts will require additional fees. Here is a link to a practice test online: http://hpscorecard.dts.utah.gov/dld/dld_practice_test.php
Students under 18 are required to hold their learner’s permit for at least 6 months before receiving their actual driver’s license. They are required to do 40 hours (10 hrs at night) of additional driving practice with a parent or guardian during this 6-month period. The road test may be scheduled after the 6-month period and 40 hours of driving are completed. Upon successful completion of the road test, students will be issued their driver’s license. More information can be found on the State website: http://publicsafety.utah.gov/dld/minorteen12.html Students who are 18 years old when they receive their permit do not have to wait the 6-month period before receiving their license. While they have their permit, the student who is 18 may drive with an adult of at least 21 years of age. Students who are not US citizens need to take additional paperwork and documents to the Driver’s License Bureau. LCA will do our best to help you with this process.
