Additional Information and Requirements
The classes are open to all public school students, homeschooled students, and private school students.
The course is 30 hours long, and students are required to attend every day. Students may miss one class session for any reason but must attend the make-up day. Students must attend 15 of 16 sessions, and there are no exceptions.
Class fees are $65. Please make checks payable to Wilkes Central High School or bring $65 cash. Fees will be taken up the first day of class or during the parent meeting. Please do not put money or checks in the registration packets.
Behind the Wheel training will begin with the oldest students being scheduled first. Please do not expect to be given a driving schedule when the classroom portion is completed. Mike Greene will be in charge of BTW training, and there are many factors that determine when students are scheduled. Every effort is made to get students through this hands-on training as soon as possible.
If you have any questions or concerns, contact Mike Greene at (336) 957-6627 or through email at [email protected]
