Student/Parent/Legal Guardian

We are committed to providing a high-quality education for each student to keep them safe along with other roadway users.

I agree that my son/daughter will attend all classes and drive at all scheduled drive times. Students shall complete 30 hours of classroom instruction in 15 scheduled classroom sessions. Students shall complete 10 hours of behind the wheel instruction. The driving lessons are scheduled in 1 hour increments, no less. Students shall complete a minimum of 6 hours of in-car observation hours. If a student misses a classroom session, the student shall be assigned a 500-word essay for each chapter missed with a maximum of no more than 4 hours. A document must be signed by the parent stating the reason for missed class and must be turned into the instructor at the next class. The essay must be submitted at a date assigned by the instructor. All students must pass an eye chart examination 20/40 on the first day of class. All students must submit a copy of their birth certificate on or before the first day of class.

We ask that you comply with this law.

The state of New Hampshire requires all driving schools to have the contract signed by the parent/legal guardian and a hardcopy on file at our office by the third class.
