Drivers Education



Caldwell School District Students may have the opportunity to take our drivers ed course with their 
Advanced Opportunity Funds!!!!
Any student meeting qualifications may use their Fast Forward Funds for Drivers Ed!!
Advanced Opportunity/Fast Forward funds are available to ALL students from the State of Idaho.  Students must be carrying a full schedule and must have passed all previous classes using these funds.  To find out if you qualify for these funds - see your counselor!!
We expect our summer class to fill up fast with students being able to use these funds.  Registration will open on March 1st.  We highly suggest obtaining the permit from DMV prior to March 1st as it will be first come, first serve.
Step 1:  See counselor and check qualification for using your Fast Forward Funding.
Step 2:  Go to registrar (Mrs. Spath) and obtain VOC - required to get permit.
Step 3:  Review items needed to take to DMV - see permit information page.  Obtain permit.  Fast Forward Funding does not cover the cost of the permit - $21.50.
Step 4:  Registration for the summer class opens on March 1st.  First come, First served - sign up online.  Permit number is required for online registration.  
An email confirmation will be sent within 3 business days of registration. 
If student does not qualify for fast forward funding - they may still register.  The cost will continue to be $185.00  This will be collected at our student/parent meeting.
Step 5:  Student/Parent Meeting is required!  Date & Time to be Announced.
Class Dates will be listed on the drivers ed calendar as soon as they become available.
Parents are required to ride with the student/instructor for the final drive.  
Class Attendance Policy:  Only two absences will be allowed during the course of drivers training and those absences must be made up.  Idaho State Department of Drivers Education requires 30 classroom hours.  The make up time is to be arranged with the classroom teacher and will cost the student an additional fee.  This make up fee does NOT come from fast forward funds.  Students/Parents are responsible for make up fees!  $30 for the first missed class, $45 for the second missed class.  Students missing more than two classes will be dropped.  
Fast Forward Fund Availability will be verified by the district coordinator the week prior to class starting.  Any student not qualifying will be contacted.  The student will be responsible for payment or will be dropped.  A grade of 80% or higher is required to pass this course.  Any grade lower than 80%, or being dropped due to attendance will place a freeze on the students' fast forward funding account until the class is retaken and passed.  Retaking the class will result in paying the current fees at the time of the next session.  
**To view the Drivers Ed Calendar - use the "Calendar" tab on the right in the blue box above "Online Registration".  The other calendar tab across the top is the district calendar and does not have our dates on it.**

 If we have driving instructors available, we may allow a student to sign up for an IDLA class.  Please check with Mrs. Howard or Mr. Cooper for availability.

**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.


Summer Class registration will open on March 1st, 2018.

(Dates for these future classes will soon be posted on the calendar)
