The cost for our drivers ed class is $225.00.  All Elevate students may use their Advanced Opportunities Fast Forward Funds for this class.  Any out-of-district students or Elevate students not qualifying for these funds will be required to pay the $225.00.  We will accept $100 down payment the evening of the student/parent meeting(April 6th).  The remaining balance will be due no later than May 1st, 2020.

Anyone using fast forward funds and dropping after the parent/student meeting may have these funds frozen.

Idaho State Law requires 30 class hours.  Attendance is mandatory.  Drivers Ed Classes MUST be made a priority.  If student plans on sporting camps, vacations, etc, they need to check with their coaches/teachers to be sure they can be late and/or miss practices to attend drivers ed. There will be a missed class fee and the class must be made up.  The first miss will be $30, the 2nd miss will be $30 and may require attending an alive at 25 class.  3 or more missed classes and the student may be dropped.

For those students involved in sports or extra curricular activities that would make them miss too many classes, please check into a later session or online IDLA classes.  We will advertise here when we have available drivers for an IDLA class.


**There are several online courses that can be found on the internet.  Our driving instructors will ONLY drive with students registered for IDLA – the only Idaho State Department of Education Driver Education approved online course.
