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.
