How do I qualify for a scholarship?
If you are on free/reduced lunch through the school district, you qualify! All scholarships will be verified through the district office. We will not notify you unless you do not qualify, so if you do not hear back from us, your student received the scholarship. This option reduces the cost of the class by $75.
Will I still have to take the drive test at DMV?
High Desert Driver Education, an approved ODOT provider, will issue a certificate that will waive the Class C drive test with the DMV. Students must successfully complete the driver education program with at least 80% to receive this waiver. High Desert Driver Education will administer your final drive, so you won’t have to go to the DMV for the driving test.
Will I receive a discount on my insurance?
You will earn an official ODOT waiver certificate or certificate of completion (if 18 years or licensed), which could qualify for insurance discounts with some companies. Students must attend and pass all tests, worksheets, and behind the wheel with an 80% or better. Students must also attend 30 hours of classroom and 12 hours of behind-the-wheel training/observation.
Check with your insurance company to see if this is an option for you!
