At its August 5, 2013 meeting, the Harnett County Schools Board of Education approved
a $55 charge for any student who takes Driver Education. Due to significant reduction in State
funding for the program, the General Assembly provided a provision in law to allow school districts
to impose this charge.
Students must be at least 14 years, 6 months old to register for a Driver Education class.
Students are required to complete 30 hours in the driver education classroom and 6
hours behind the wheel instruction.
Driver education classes are scheduled throughout the school year and during the summer.
Behind the wheel driving is conducted after school, on Saturdays and during the summer.
The State created an additional provision for 2015-16 allowing students to obtain a waiver
if they feel they are unable to pay the fee associated with driver education. For further information
