As the parent, or legal guardian of the student enrolled, I agree that my son/daughter may be provided in-car instruction on an individual (one-on-one) basis with only the instructor and the student present in the vehicle during instruction. This waiver shall be effective for all lessons. I understand that failure to sign this waiver will not prevent my son/daughter from being accepted in the course, and that the school will make every effort to schedule from two to four students per vehicle. However, if I do not sign this waiver, my son/daughter will be prohibited from in-car instruction on a specific day if he/she is the only student available for an in-car lesson.

By signing below, the Student and the Parent/Guardian acknowledges a receipt of the complete and true original copy of this Contract and agrees to all terms and conditions, including those set forth on the reverse side. The school acknowledges and accepts the terms and conditions of this Contract. Specifically, the student and the parent/guardian acknowledges, the schedule classroom start date and time, the scheduled classroom completion date, and the date all instruction must be completed.


If a student is absent in excess of 25% of the scheduled classroom training time, he or she will be terminated. A full hour of absence is charged to the student when he or she does not attend the full 55 minutes of instruction during a 60-minute period. The student whose enrollment is terminated for violations of the attendance policy may not reenter before the start of the next new class. If the student enters the next new class and completes the scheduled classroom, and in-car phase of instruction within 365 days of the original contract, refunds that were due may be transferred to the new contract. The student may receive credit for previous training if the student reenters and completes the applicable portion of the course within 365 day period, starting from the first scheduled day of class on the original contract. All absences are subject to the attendance policy regardless of whether the student attends make-up lessons. Students may be allowed to complete up to ten hours of classroom make-up work assignments outside of regularly scheduled classroom instruction. Schools shall not initiate nor encourage absences. Make-up policies shall adhere to the following requirements: For a policy that allows a student to attend a missed lesson on the same date or at a later date at a regularly scheduled class, the class shall be engaged in the same lesson the student missed previously. For a policy that allows a student to perform an individual make-up lesson, a sample of each make-up lesson, clearly labeled as “makeup for the driver education course,” shall be available for review by the Texas Education Agency at the school. Each lesson shall be clearly identified as a make-up lesson and identified as to the units of instruction to be covered. Evidence of make-up completed outside of regularly scheduled classroom instruction shall be placed in the student file. A school may allow a student to attend an alternative class on the same calendar day if the sequence of instruction will be maintained by the identical lesson being offered. The student instruction record shall reflect the time of day the alternative class was attended. A student selecting alternative scheduling shall not be considered absent. The enrollment of students who do not complete all required instructional hours within the timelines specified in the original student enrollment contract will be terminated. Contractual timelines shall not exceed one year. * A fee of $15.00 per 30 minutes behind-the-wheel session ($30.00 per hour) will be paid by the student in the event the student is absent FOR ANY REASON for a scheduled session unless the student notifies the school twenty-four (24) hours prior to the scheduled session(s). All succeeding scheduled driving sessions following an absence will be canceled. Students may reschedule driving sessions only after payment for a missed session is made.


Appropriate standards shall be implemented to ascertain the progress of the students. Progress standards shall meet the requirements of the currently adopted curriculum guide. Each school shall submit to the director for approval an established procedure to ensure that all students demonstrate an acceptable level of mastery of the essential elements for driver education.

One or more of the following methods shall determine evidence of successful completion and mastery: (A) unit tests; (B) written assignments; (C) skills performance checklist; and (D) comprehensive examination of knowledge and skills. The progress evaluation record shall be of the type and nature to reflect whether the student is making satisfactory progress to the point of being able to complete all subject matter within the allotted time provided in the currently approved course curriculum for driver education.


Students are expected to conduct themselves in a safe and responsible manner while on school property, and as operators or passengers in school vehicles. Unsafe, in attentive, disruptive, unlawful, or destructive behavior will not be tolerated, and will result in a student being advised and warnings issued by the school director.
