Caldwell district offers Marsing driver’s ed again

 Online registration is now available for Marsing students who want to take part in the Caldwell High School driver’s education program.
  The summer program is open to students out of the Marsing district as well as those who are home-schooled.
  Classes will be held from May 20 to June 28
  Registration must be completed online under the Drivers Ed icon on the website. Click on “Parent/Student Resources” to get to the icon. That’s where parents and students can get more information, too.
  Registration can only be completed after the student has obtained a learner’s permit.
  Class spots will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. A parent/student meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. Wednesday inside the Marsing School District cafeteria on 8th Avenue West.
  A receipt showing a DMV-issued driver’s permit transaction is necessary to complete enrollment in the class.
  The class costs $200, and a minimum deposit of $100 is due at registration. Cash and checks only. The enrollment fee must be paid in full by May 28.
  For more information, contact Bill Cooper at (208) 371-8196 or Pam Howard at (208) 880-9695 or email
  Classroom instruction will begin on May 20 and run from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., on May 20-22 and May 28-29.
  Beginning June 3, the class time will change to 7 a.m. to 8:30 a.m.
  Students must have 30 hours of classroom instruction. There are 20 days of instruction scheduled.
  The final exam is scheduled for Wednesday, June 26.
  Location of the classroom has not yet been determined because of the ongoing Marsing schools construction project.
  Class materials include a three-ring binder, paper and pencil.
  Students are required to have minimum of six hours behind the wheel instruction time and a minimum of six hours observation time. Driving will be on Monday/Wednesday/Friday, or on Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday.
  A parent is required to ride with the student/instructor for the final drive.
  Only two absences will be allowed during the course of drivers training, and the absences must be made up.
  The make-up time is to be arranged with the instructors and will cost the student an additional $30 for the first absence and $45 for the second absence. Students missing more than two classes/drives will be dropped, and the class fee will not be refunded.
  To participate in driver’s education, students must obtain a learner’s permit from the Division of Motor Vehicles. The student and parent or guardian must go to the DMV office and tell the clerk that the permit must be sent to Caldwell’s program.
  Students must be 14½ years old on or before the day they purchase the permit, which costs $21.50 and can be bought with cash or check only.
  Items needed to obtain a driving permit include
  • Proof of relationship to parent or guardian if the child’s last name differs
  • A “Verification of Compliance” form obtained from their school, which will need two to three days notice to complete the form.
  • An original, state-certified birth certificate from the state in which the student was born. Copies will not be accepted nor will hospital certificates. Students must be fourteen years six months (14 ½) years old on or before the day they purchase a drivers permit.
  • Both parent and student must provide photo ID. For the student, it can be a student activity card, yearbook or military card.
  • The student’s Social Security number also must be provided.
