Waxahachie Driving School
EFFECTIVE 6/1/2014 We Will No Longer Offer After School Pick Up
***OUR SCHOOL WILL BE CLOSED OCTOBER 24, 2014 & OCTOBER 25, 2014.***
Our Goal is to make driving second nature, with us you'll be learning with people who have experience, and are up to date with their skills.
Class meets Monday through Thursday for four weeks from 6:30p.m. - 8:30p.m. Make-up time for classroom is on Fridays from 6:30p.m. - 8:30p.m. The classroom must be completed in 90 days from the first day of class.
Maximum number of classes that can be missed is four. Each class must be made up during another class when the same lesson is being taught or on Friday 6:30-8:30.
Students will be expected to pay attention and be cooperative during the class time and driving time (No Sleeping). The material we teach is very important. Any student who cannot cooperate will be asked to leave class that day and will not be allowed back unless the student/parents feel he/she is ready. Waxahachie Driving School provides students with a textbook to be used during class. If the student destroys or damages the textbook there will be a $25.00 replacement fee.
OBTAINING A PERMIT
After a student has completed six hours (three days) of classroom instruction, he or she may go to the DPS to obtain a permit. The written test is given to the students at our school. The following will be needed at the DPS office.
- Application (DL14A): Filled out in black ink except student and parent
- DE964 form from the driving school after completing three days
- Social Security Card
- T.E.A. or V.O.E. form-this is a verification of enrollment/attendance in school
- Birth Certificate—this must be an original or certified copy of the student's
State or county birth certificate. Also used can be: passport, resident alien card or
- Report card, Progress report or School I.D.
(Our school will need a copy of both the Birth Certificate and V.O.E. form for our records.)
The student must spend fourteen hours in the car driving and observing. If driving is scheduled on the same day as class the student will be here for four hours. Students should show up at least 5 minutes before their drive time with their permit. Any student who does not have their permit when they show up to a drive time will not be allowed to drive on that day. Any student who cannot make a scheduled driving time must call at least 24 hours in advance and cancel. If a student does not call 24 hours prior to his drive time, there will be a $30.00 cancellation charge. The sixth driving time is the driving test. Students, in our opinion, who are not ready to pass the test will be advised of weakness and the lesson will be postponed. We will not rush the student through the driving process.
The seven hours of driving a student receives from us set a foundation of skills, but the student will advance faster with practice at home. Feel free to call and check on the student's progress at any time.
