ONLINE REGISTRATION NOW OPEN FOR APRIL 1ST ELIGIBLE STUDENTS!

Please welcome our new director - Lisa Velasquez

Ms. Velasquez has been with our program for the past 15 years.  She plans on continuing the successful program that Mr. Cooper had built.  We are very excited that she has accepted this responsibility and look forward to her leading the program for many years to come.  

WE ARE CURRENTLY FULL.  WE ARE NOT ACCEPTING ANYMORE ON THE WAITING LIST. 

Next Session will be Fall Classes.  Information will be available July 15th.  Online Registration will open on August 1st. 

 

Please see the link for detailed information for our Summer Session 2022 classes.  We will try to schedule the drive times as close to the class times as possible.  Please know all of our drive instructors are also teachers/coaches.  Some are still teaching other summer classes, coaching, taking summer conferences to keep their teaching licenses, etc.  It is important to make time for this session to complete the hours required by the State of Idaho.  Attendance is mandatory. 

PERMIT FROM DMV IS REQUIRED PRIOR TO ONLINE REGISTRATION.  WE SUGGEST YOU OBTAIN THE PERMIT ASAP.  TELL DMV TO SEND THE PERMIT TO CALDWELL HIGH SCHOOL FOR ALL OF OUR SESSIONS.

AS OF JULY 1ST 2021 - DMV RAISED THE PRICE OF THE PERMIT TO $26.50.

DUE TO STUDENTS ATTENDING FROM DIFFERENT SCHOOLS - OUR ONLINE PROGRAM WILL REQUIRE A NON-SCHOOL RELATED GMAIL ACCOUNT.  PLEASE SET UP A NEW STUDENT NON-SCHOOL GMAIL ACCOUNT PRIOR TO REGISTERING IF YOU DON'T ALREADY HAVE ONE.  IT IS HELPFUL TO OUR INSTRUCTORS IF THE GMAIL INCLUDES THE STUDENT NAME.  
 

(If you choose another driving school after having DMV send the permit to us, simply call us and we can forward the permit to the new driving school.  You will NOT be required to obtain a new permit)

IMPORTANT:  THE DRIVING PERMIT RECEIPT YOU RECEIVE FROM DMV DOES NOT ALLOW YOU TO DRIVE WITH ANYONE EXCEPT A CERTIFIED LICENSED DRIVERS ED INSTRUCTOR.  THAT IS WHY THE ACTUAL PERMIT IS SENT TO US AND NOT YOU.  AFTER SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETING THE COURSE AND THE STUDENT HAS THE CERTIFICATE/HARD CARD PERMIT IN THEIR POSSESSION - THEN THEY ARE ALLOWED TO DRIVE WITH A LEGAL LICENSED 21 YEAR OR OLDER ADULT.

Students must have time available during the week/weekend to accommodate our drivers.  Please be courteous to our drivers.  They are also coaches and they have families with their activities to work around.  If you fail to show up for a drive - you take time away from their families.  We appreciate our instructors taking as many students as they do which allows many of you to register that might have been turned away.  The first missed drive fee will be $30, the second missed drive fee will be $30.  Miss more than 2 and you will be dropped from the class.

 Cost will be $200  Fee will be paid at Mandatory Parent/Student Meeting. 

Fast Forward Funds may be used if CSD student qualifies for them.  Students must be logged in with their CSD email and go to blue box -  "Links" on our website - complete the online form for Advanced Opportunities Fast Forward Funds.  

Students who do NOT attend Caldwell Schools will need to check with their school in regards to fast forward funding.  If students do qualify - they will need to pay us the $200 and then request a reimbursement from their school upon passing this class.  This is between you and your school.  

We only accept Cash or Check payable to CSD.  We do not accept credit/debit cards.
