    Early bird registration fee of $335 ends 2 weeks prior to the start date of class. After that, the price increases to $360.

    Deadline to register for class is 1 week prior to the start date of class.

    There may be an opportunity for students to take their permit test on the last day of class.  In the event that is possible we will need your student's social security number. You will be asked to provide it upon registration. If testing is unable to be provided the last day of class or your student is not yet 15 years old, students and parents will need to make arrangements to take the written permit test on their own. Testing locations and information can be found HERE.
