What is the attendance policy for the Driver's Education Class?

Perfect attendance is vital to the student’s success in the class, on the range and on the road.  Students must attend the mandatory meeting, classes, range, and road with a B- (80%) or better to pass the course.

How do I schedule Range and Road for Driver's Education?

Range and Road are a required component of Driver’s Education.  Range and road make up 6 of the required 40 hours needed to drive, prior to obtaining a license.  Range is scheduled while in the class and takes place in the evening. If you are taking the online class, you need to schedule range by emailing the Driver’s Ed Coordinator BJ Roberts at [email protected] .  Road is schedule with their assigned instructor.  All students are encouraged to schedule road when they have completed their 40+ hours of driving and are ready to be tested.

What if I take the Driver's Education class on-line?

Cedar Valley High School DOES  offer an on-line class.  This class starts at the beginning of each month September through July.  Each student will have one month to complete the necessary course work or retake and repay for the course again.  Students who take the Driver’s Education class via on-line, can schedule Range and Road through Mr. Roberts at [email protected] .   The cost is $150 for this portion for the online course and Range/Road.  Students that are looking for just the Range/Road portion the fee is $105.  Students who take the class on-line are required to complete the following:

  • Register and complete Street Smart: A Computer Simulator Program.  Registration will be available to you when you register for Range/Road.
  • Attend any Zero Fatalities Parent/Student meeting.  Zero Fatalities meetings are available here, at Cedar Valley, and on the Zero Fatalities website.  Students must provide proof of attendance to Mr.Roberts

Why do parents and students attend the mandatory Parent/Student Meeting?

The mandatory parent/student meeting is one of the attendance days built into the program and is now required by the State of Utah as of January 1st 2022.  This meeting is essential in setting the tone to the importance of driving and the role of both the parent and student.  Utah’s Zero Fatalities, in conjunction with our instructors, present important information regarding the class such as rules, regulations and the many obstacles and distractions young drivers face.  The meeting lasts approximately 1.5 hours.   You will not receive credit for the class unless this is completed.

Effective January 1, 2016, in compliance with House Bill 147, applicants applying for an original or provisional Class D license are required to pass this additional knowledge test prior to receiving a permanent license. This exam covers driving safety topics and the top five major causes of traffic related deaths as identified by the Utah Highway Safety Office.

When should I sign up for Driver's Ed?

If you want to make sure to have all of your requirements done to get your license on your desired day. I would suggest that you take the class 4-6 months prior to that date.  I would also suggest that you take range 2-4 months before that date and road about 1 month before that  your date.

Please keep in mind that you must have your learners permit for at least six months prior to getting your license.
