    Key information to know before you sign up for a class:

    To be eligible for any class, a student must be at least 14 ½ years old by the registration date of the class he/she is planning to attend. All students must also be under the age of 18. In order to view our full schedule, please click on the Driver's Education Schedule Tab. The total cost for the program is $90.  


    Attenance at all class sessions is mandatory. If you have a conflict, you should sign up for a different class as exceptions cannot be accommodated. If you are in season with a sport or band, then you should wait until after your season is completed in order to sign up for the class. Only WJHS students and homeschool/private school students who live in the WJHS district are eligible for driver's education at WJHS. If you live in another district, then you should take driver's education at your assigned school site.


    Once you have signed up for the class, you and your student will receive an email invitation for a required student/parent meeting to complete the registration for the class. If you are unable to attend the meeting for this upcoming class, then you should not sign up for this class. If the student and parent do not attend the student/parent meeting, then your student will not be registered for the class.  


    The class signup for our next class will be April 18th at 8AM and the Student/Parent Meeting will be April 19th from 6:30PM-8:00PM. In order to signup for the class you will need your student school email address and a parent email address. The signup link for the May class will be posted CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP on April 18th @ 8AM. This class will be limited to the first 35 students who register for the class. If you do not get signed up for the class, be sure to fill out the waitlist form in case we have a student drop the class. Waitlist Link if you did not get signed up! Check out our full schedule under the Driver's Ed Schedule tab.



    If you are interested in signing up just for the next Alive @ 25 class on 3/29 from 2:20-6:20 pm because you have taken the Driver Ed class somewhere other than at WJHS and need a parking pass, please email me at taylorblake@johnston.k12.nc.us. 


    *The student and parent must attend the student/Parent meeting in order to attend the class.  When you see an active link above (usually about one month before the class begins), please sign up for the class that you would like to attend.  We will not allow more than 35 students in one class so students will be placed according to the order in which they signed up.  Once a class fills up the link will be closed.  For this reason, you are encouraged to sign up as soon as possible to get placed in the class of your choosing.
