Fees Now Being Charged for Driver Education

During the 2011 Legislative Session the North Carolina General Assembly cut over $5 million from the state’s driver education allotment. Local school systems were given permission to charge each student enrolled in driver education a fee of up to $45.00 to make up for lost funds.

Beginning with the 2011-2012 school year, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School System will charge a fee of $45.00 to students taking the classroom phase of driver education. The behind-the-wheel phase will still be free of charge to the student.

The CMS driver education office is in the process of setting up a system by which the fee can be paid on-line with a credit card. Students will also be able to bring their payment on the first day of class. When paying in class, it must be cash, certified check, or money order. Payee must be Jordan Driving School, Inc.

While this whole payment process is still being finalized the CMS driver education office, along with Jordan Driving School who provides the instructional part of driver education for CMS, felt that parents and students needed this notification that a fee was now in place for the classroom phase of driver education.
