AS OF 3/25/20, ALL CLASSES & DRIVES ARE CANCELLED AT LEAST THROUGH 4/7/20.
WE ARE NOT RESCHEDULING ROAD TESTS/ADULT DRIVES/ADDITIONAL STUDENT DRIVES UNTIL WE KNOW WHEN WE WILL BE ABLE TO CONTINUE DRIVING.
Update on precautions being taken at Coach's Driver Education:
Coach's is asking that only student taking class or doing drives enter our buildings. Parents/guardians we would appreciate the use of our web site or phone calls instead of visiting our offices in person.
Coach's has limited the number of students per class to 9 only, plus the instructor. The classroom is disinfected after every class to limit any potential harm to our students. The instructors are also disinfecting the vehicles.
As these precautions have been & are being taken, drive cancellations still require the 72-hour cancellation notice or there is a $30 fee. This is the 2nd week we have all been affected in some way with this situation. The timeline has allowed for plenty of time for students to cancel their drives and not incur the reschedule fee. This fee is in place to pay the instructors as they are here and need to be paid for their time.
REMINDER: STUDENTS MAY NOT DRIVE WITH OPEN-TOED SHOES!
ALL STUDENTS HAVE ONE (1) YEAR TO COMPLETE THE DRIVER EDUCATION PROGRAM. COACH'S DRIVER EDUCATION WILL NOT BE ABLE TO HAVE STUDENTS RETURN PAST THIS TIMELINE TO COMPLETE THE DRIVER EDUCATION COURSE. THIS ALSO INCLUDES ON-LINE CLASSROOM STUDENTS ATTENDING COACH'S TO COMPLETE THE 6 ONE HOUR DRIVES. IF A STUDENT IS NOT COMPLETED WITHIN THE 1 YEAR, THEY FORFEIT THE REST OF THE PROGRAM ALONG WITH THEIR DRIVER EDUCATION STATUS.
PAYMENT SHOULD BE MADE IMMEDIATELY WHEN ENROLLING STUDENTS IN CLASS TO ENSURE THE STUDENT HAS A CONFIRMED SEAT. STUDENTS WHO HAVE NOT MADE PAYMENT WILL BE DELETED FROM THE ROSTER WITHIN 48 HOURS OR SOONER DEPENDING ON SEAT AVAILABLILITY.
WHEN ENROLLING A STUDENT, THE NICKNAME/PREFERRED NAME IS FOR THE STUDENT NOT THE PARENT.
PARENTS: PLEASE BE HERE TO PICK YOUR STUDENT UP ON TIME. OUR INSTRUCTORS/OFFICE STAFF ARE NOT AVAILABLE TO LOOK AFTER STUDENTS WHO ARE DONE WITH CLASS/DRIVE APPOINTMENTS AND YOU ARE NOT HERE. AS OUR FACILITY MAY BE CLOSED/LOCKED, THE STUDENTS WILL NOT HAVE ACCESS TO WAITING INSIDE THE BUILDING.
YOU MUST BE AT LEAST 15 YEARS OLD TO ENROLL AND TAKE DRIVER EDUCATION (THIS APPLIES TO BOTH ON-SITE CLASSES AT COACH'S AND ON-LINE CLASSROOM STUDENTS).
STUDENTS WHO TAKE CLASSES AT/THROUGH OUR OFFICES, YOU WILL RECEIVE YOUR PAPERWORK (TO TAKE TO THE BMV TO GET YOUR DRIVER EDUCATION PERMIT) THE FIRST NIGHT OF CLASS. DO NOT WAIT TO GET YOUR PERMIT OR SCHEDULE/TAKE YOUR DRIVES ONCE YOU HAVE BEGUN CLASSES.
STUDENTS ALREADY HOLDING A PERMIT PRIOR TO TAKING CLASSES AT COACH'S - DO NOT SCHEDULE ANY DRIVES PRIOR TO COMPLETING YOUR FIRST DAY OF CLASS.
ON-LINE STUDENTS, YOU WILL RECEIVE YOUR PAPERWORK (TO TAKE TO THE BMV TO GET YOUR DRIVER EDUCATION PERMIT) ONCE YOU ENROLL, SUBMIT YOUR PAYMENT, AND BRING YOUR ON-LINE COMPLETION FORM TO OUR OFFICES.
YOU MAY NOT SCHEDULE ANY DRIVES UNTIL ALL PAPERWORK HAS BEEN SUBMITTED AND CONTACT MADE WITH OFFICE STAFF.
ALL STUDENTS ARE STRONGLY ENCOURAGED TO COMPLETE THE ENTIRE DRIVER EDUCATION PROGRAM (30 HOURS OF CLASS + 6 ONE HOUR DRIVES) WITHIN 120 DAYS IF POSSIBLE.
THE 30 HOURS OF CLASSROOM AND 6 ONE HOUR DRIVES FOR THE DRIVER EDUCATION PROGRAM ARE MEANT TO BE TAKEN AS CLOSELY TOGETHER AS POSSIBLE. STUDENTS SHOULD NOT SIGN UP AND COMPLETE THE 30 HOURS OF CLASSROOM WITH THE INTENTION OF WAITING UNTIL READY FOR THEIR DRIVER LICENSE TO DO THE DRIVES. PRACTICING WHAT IS NEWLY LEARNED IN THE CLASSROOM WITH AN INSTRUCTOR IS TO THE OPTIMUM BENEFIT OF THE NEW DRIVER.
STUDENTS WHO HAVE OUTSTANDING FEES THAT ARE NOT PAID WITHIN 14 DAYS WILL HAVE THEIR DRIVER EDUCATION ENDORSEMENT/PERMIT EXPIRED WITH THE BMV. ONCE THE PERMIT IS EXPIRED, THE STUDENT WILL FORFEIT THE DRIVER EDUCATION PROGRAM AND MUST RE-ENTER THE PROGRAM AS A NEW STUDENT. (SEE BELOW.) TIMING ON PERMIT EXPIRATION FOR PAST DUE FEES ARE AT COACH'S DRIVER EDUCATION SOLE DISCRETION.
ONCE THE ORIGINAL DRIVER EDUCATION PERMIT EXPIRES, STUDENTS ARE NO LONGER CONSIDERED DRIVER EDUCATION STUDENTS.
TO RE-ENTER THE DRIVER EDUCATION PROGRAM ONCE YOUR ORIGINAL DRIVER EDUCATION PERMIT IS EXPIRED THE STUDENT MUST RE-ENROLL AND COMPLETE THE DRIVER EDUCATION PROGRAM ENTIRELY (30 HOURS OF CLASSROOM + 6 ONE HOUR DRIVES) AS A NEW STUDENT AT FULL COST.
