STEP 1: At the age of 15, students can go with a parent/guardian to the DLD to take the written test in order to get their permit. They must have their birth certificate, proof of residency, and social security card in order to take the test. The cost is $20.
STEP 2: Students can register for Drivers Ed. Class after receiving their permits. All classes will be taught online through Canvas using the students school email account. Use the Registration link above to register for the class. The $175 Drivers Ed Fee must be paid through the school finance office BEFORE you register. IF the link says Closed, a class is currently in session. Once a class closes, registration for the next class will open.
IMPORTANT: As soon as the student receives a registration email from Canvas, ALL OTHER ANNOUNCEMENTS AND INFORMATION is contained in the Canvas course.
STEP 3: Students should be driving with their parent/guardian when they get their permit. They should obtain a minimum of 40 hours of driving, and 10 of those hours should be at night. Skills that need to be covered are parking, backing up, turning, signaling, driving on the freeway, etc. Students must turn in the original driving log (no scans or emails will be accepted) to the counseling office, or to Mr. Phillips before a driving time can be assigned.
STEP 4: Students will be assigned to an instructor based on instructor availability. It may be a Crimson Cliffs instructor, or one from another school. Once assigned to an instructor, that instructor will reach out to the student to schedule the sessions. Contacting the instructor is not needed or necessary. Students will drive with a driving instructor a minimum of five sessions and observe other drivers.
***Students will be scheduled to complete their driving as close to their 16th birthday as possible, but it is NOT GUARANTEED due to many various circumstances.***
STEP 5: Students will be tested by a different instructor than the one they did the required sessions with and must pass with an 80% or higher.
STEP 6: After passing the driving test, students will be able to get their license at the DLD. The cost is $30.
If a student takes the Driver’s Ed class somewhere other than CCHS (i.e. Utah Online), that student will still need to do their Behind the Wheel sessions with their boundary school OR through one of the private driving schools in the area. If your student intends to do their driving sessions with Crimson, it is the responsibility of the student to provide the following items to Mr. Phillips @ Crimson once they complete the class with Utah Online and before they can be assigned to a driving instructor:
- 40 Hour Driving Log with parent signature. Must be physically turned in. No scans, photos, or emailed copies will be accepted.
- Completion Certificate from Street Smarts (Click here and Follow these steps to complete the program. Please print Completion Certificate when done )
- Student’s permit information. (Permit info is needed to create a driving card for the student)
- Both a parent and student phone number.
