NEW this session.  We have discovered students are using the State ID card as a permit number to sign up with us.  To keep your spot in the online registration line, you will be required to provide proof that you have purchased the DL permit and not simply using the State ID number.  You will need to scan and email the permit receipt from DMV to:  [email protected].    I will NOT print these.  You will be required to bring the permit receipt to the mandatory meeting!!  Do NOT LOSE IT!!

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 class and drive instructors.  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 class/drive fee will be $35, the second missed class/drive fee will be $35.  After the 2nd missed class/drive - the director will contact a parent/guardian.  Miss more than 2 class and/or drives and you will be dropped from the session without a refund.

A meeting with the parents & students is a requirement of us by the State of Idaho.  The Mandatory Parent/Student meeting actually IS Mandatory.  If the student is at a school activity, they may be excused, however, a parent or guardian MUST attend.  We hand out packets with important information and this is when payment is made.  There are no refunds after the Mandatory Parent/Student meeting.  IF a student is using their Advance Opportunities Fast Forward Funding and they change their mind and do not take the class after signing our contract, their account will still be charged for our class and they will receive an "F" for this class on their transcript.

 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 $225 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.
