HOW TO REGISTER:

Please come in to our office on any Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday during our office hours to register your student.  (Office Hours: School Year are 4:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. and Summer 10:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.)  Please bring your student with you as they need to sign their paperwork as well.  Please also bring their original birth certificate and social security card (we just want to look at them to make sure you have the correct documents and we do not need a copy).  You may start with $130 down.  Second payment of $130 is due by the end of the 3 weeks of class and the third payment of $135 (and any no show fees) is due when they complete all their drive times and make up classes.


DOCUMENTS NEEDED:

Original Birth Certificate or Certified copy (This cannot be a hospital document; it needs to be from a city, state or county; you may also use a passport if it is not expired.) Foreign exchange students should inquire with us what they need to get their permit.

Original Social Security Card (If you have lost the original card, you must go to one of three Social Security Administration locations in the area to apply for a duplicate card. As of August, 2014, the SSA no longer will issue a NUMI form to use at the DPS so you must wait until the original card arrives in the mail to be able to go get the permit. You may register with Metro and begin classes without the card, but you will need to the original card to get a permit and thus not be able to drive until you have your permit. It usually takes only a couple of weeks  for the card to arrive in the mail.)

Original TEA form (also called the VOE form; if you are 15 or older, you can obtain this form from your school's front office, attendance clerk, or counselor). THIS FORM IS NOT NEEDED FOR REGISTERING but will need it by day 3 of class.  However, please make sure your student is eligible to get this form (it is about their attendance in school). It is ultimately for getting your  permit at the DPS. The TEA form expires. It is only good for 30 days during the school year. Once request this form from your school, it takes 24 hours to make the form available to you. If your student is  14 years old, do not get this form until you are close to their 15th birthday. If their birthday is in the summer, then request it on the last few days of May and it will be good until the beginning of the next school year. Please ask us what you need if you are home-schooled or have your GED.

GENERAL INFORMATION (very important):

1. A student is eligible to take the permit test after 3 days of class. After a student has completed classes 1, 2  and 3 a student will take the permit test. We will then  give the results of those tests on the certificate they  will take to the DPS to process their permit. The  student will have their picture taken, an eye test and their thumbprints made in order to get the permit at the DPS. They will also need the following with them when they go to the DPS:
   a. 3 qualifying documents: Birth Certificate, SS card, and the VOE/TEA form
   b. DE964 form from Metro along with notarized forms
   c. $16 (cash, check or any credit card)
   d. Corrective lenses, if needed (glasses or contacts)
   e. 2 proofs of residency. This can be two different  current utility bills. These bills will need to have the same address as the one the student is using on their permit. It will not be in their name, only the parent/legal guardian's name. A student cannot miss class because they are going to the DPS to process their permit.
2. A student can only miss 5 classes and has to make up the exact class number they missed. If a student misses more than 5 classes, they will have to start over with the classroom portion again. There are no extenuating circumstances or exceptions to this rule mandated by the Texas Education Agency.
3. A student can make up a class on the same day as their regularly-scheduled class, before or after, as long as it is the exact class number they need or a student can make up a class after their original three weeks are over.
4. A student has 180 days to complete the entire program, including make-up classes, driving times, observation times and payment.
5. A student can only drive one hour a day but can observe more than one hour a day when needed to make-up missed observation times.
6. A student cannot drive during classroom time.
7. A student is eligible for permit testing after the first  three class days. They must have 6 hours of class before they are eligible so if they miss one of the first three days they will not be eligible until they have done days 1, 2 and 3.
8. A student needs to be a minimum age of 15 to get their permit. However, a student can begin the classroom portion prior to being 15. We recommend a student not begin the classes prior to 3 months before their 15th birthday however, a student may legally begin at 14 and a half.
9. Driving times will not be completed during a student's three weeks of classroom time. Check with us regarding the availability of times and the expected completion date. COMPLETION OF DRIVING TIMES COULD TAKE SEVERAL WEEKS LONGER (especially during peak season times).
10. A parent's or legal guardian's signature is required at registration to take the course.
11. A notary is provided to notarize the necessary documents.
12. Driving times will be offered to students as they become available during their class sessions weekly. All or remaining driving times will be chosen on their last few days of class for future dates. They will be able to choose their times. We do not force them to take times they cannot make.
13. When a student begins their driving times, if they are not able to come to a time, they must let the school know either in person or by phone at least 24 hours in advance so that time may be given to another student. If you do not inform us, there will be a $20.00 no-show fee. If a student comes to a driving time without their permit, they will not be able to drive and thus charged the $20.00 no-show fee unless a replacement student can be found.
