Student Driver Information

For Learner's Permit: All students must have a certificate of attendance to obtain their learner's license.  This may be obtained by the student from the front office during normal business hours.  The certificate of attendance is good for 30 days. For additional requirements, please click here to access the Georgia Department of Driver Services website.

For Driver's License: All students must have a updated certificate of attendance, as well as proof of successful completion of the ADAP class.  Certificates are distributed to students that successfully complete the ADAP course requirements.  If you have misplaced your certificate, please see the Upper School Counseling Office for a replacement.
