    Class Requirements

    Richmond City Schools offers a Driver Education curriculum in 4 phases:

    • Classroom
    • Simulation
    • Range
    • On Road (Behind the Wheel)

    Note: Each phase must be passed in order for a student to become licensed. Also there will be a $ 200.00 fee for the behind the wheel phase. This fee must be paid to your simulator teacher or range coordinator before being schedule for the behind the wheel


    The safety of everyone involved is our first concern. We will create a safe learning environment. The most important component of being a safe driver is responsibility. It is our responsibility to identify those students that we feel demonstrate the responsible behavior necessary to safely operate a vehicle.

    The following procedures will be effect to ensure that the student license can become safe drivers:

    • Attend class regularly. Excessive absences will not allow students to meet state requirements. (Upon going over the maximum absences allowed students will not receive a license.)
    • Conduct yourself in a responsible manner at all times. (Any student who shows a pattern of irresponsible behavior can be removed from the program.) It should be understood that the final decision in allowing a student to drive rests with the parents.
    • Please sign and return this to school and feel free to contact us at any time at 780-6142.
