Driver Education


For those who submitted registration you will hear back soon.


We are making some changes to our program and we are looking forward to providing opportunities for our students in the upcoming months. Due to limited drivers, classes this fall will be smaller than normal. The fee for the current 2023-2024 school year will be $225. Students who qualify, can use fast forward funds to help pay for the cost. In Person driving will begin mid October 2023.


Before registering for any classes, please know attendance is mandatory. Idaho State Law requires 30 hours of class time and a minimum of six hours behind the wheel plus observation time. 


A mandatory meeting with parents and students will be held on Thursday, September 14, 2023, at 6:30 pm in the Caldwell High School Library. If the student is at a school activity, they may be excused, however, a parent or guardian MUST attend. Information packets along with payment will be required at this meeting. There are no refunds after this Parent/Student meeting. IF a student is using their Advance Opportunities Fast Forward Funds and decides not to take the class, after signing the contract, their account will be charged and the student will receive an "F" for this class on their transcript. 


Permits from the DMV are required prior to online registration. We suggest you obtain the permit as soon as possible. Please have the DMV send the permit to Caldwell High School. 

  • The price of a Driver's License Permit is $26.50.


The driving permit receipt you receive from the DMV does not allow you to drive with anyone except a certified licensed driver education instructor. After successfully completing the course, the student will be given the certificate/hard card permit. Students will then be allowed to drive with a legal licensed 21 year old or older adult.


Students must be available during the week/weekend to accommodate our class and driver instructors. The first and second missed class/drive fee is $35. After the 2nd missed class/drive, the director will contact a parent/guardian. If you miss more than two classes and/or drives, you will be dropped from the session without a refund.

We only accept Cash or Check payable to Caldwell School District. We do not accept credit/debit cards.
