Driver's Education for Freshman/Physical Education
Welcome to the Mount Carmel Academy Drivers Education Program!
Classroom Requirement: As part of her freshman enrollment in physical education at MCA; your daughter will fulfill the LA. State requirement under the Graduated Licensing Program (GLP) of 30 hours of classroom instruction needed to obtain their Learner's Permit. Students will take the permit Knowledge Test at MCA through the driver's education Program.
The book fee is $25.00 which will be paid on book day.
Behind the Wheel: Once your daughter has successfully completed the 30 hour classroom portion of the GLP, she must be 15 years of age to prepare for the “8-hour behind the wheel” portion of the GLP. (NEW as of Oct 7, 2017: As mandated by the State and Title 55, every minor student enrolled in a Driver’s Education class must provide written proof that a domiciliary parent and/or legal guardian has attended a mandatory Sudden Impact meeting BEFORE the student can take the 8-hour permit driving course.) She will be placed on a list in birthday order from oldest to youngest. An instructor will call your daughter. When you feel your daughter is ready and if Mount Carmel Academy is the driving school of your choice please submit the $350.00 made out to MCA, (submitted to Mrs. Stacy Tant) to reserve your spot.
Licensure: Upon completion of the required 180 days of “permitted” driving and your daughter is 16 years of age, they can schedule a third party test with one of our instructors; Students must be accompanied with legal guardian, bring permit, proper paperwork (birth certificate - SS card) and $30.00 fee made out to Mount Carmel Academy.
If you elect to choose another provider for the “Behind-the-Wheel” portion of the state mandated GLP of Driver Education, MCA requires a $75.00 fee to obtain the necessary papers. Checks should be made payable to Mount Carmel Academy and submitted to your daughter’s classroom instructor. We require a three-day period for processing, The completed sealed paperwork will be given to your daughter. If a student does not complete the driving portion of the GLP with Mount Carmel Academy instructors, we are not able to serve as a third party testing site, which requires you to find another driving school to provide the Behind-the-Wheel course and take your daughter to the OMV to schedule the driving test.
Thank you for your continued support of our Driver’s Education program. If you have any questions or concerns, please email: email@example.com
We are blessed that the State has approved us as a third-party testing site for students who complete the entire Driver’s Education program with us. We will continue to do all that we can to provide this service to our families.
