Driver Education

Driver Education is taught by the North Carolina Driving School contracting with the Gaston County Board of Education.  Classes are conducted during the summer and after school as student demand requires.  Behind-the-wheel instruction is conducted when class work is completed during after-school and weekend hours.  Students must be 14 1/2 years old to enroll in a Driver Education class, but classes are offered to students in order of their age with the oldest students given priority.  This course receives no high school credit.
