2. I would suggest also calling North Carolina Division of Non-Public Education (NCDNPE) 1(919)733-4276 to make sure their requirements are still the same as what I've listed here.
NCDNPE Student Driving Information.
These are things I needed when my kids got their Driver's Permits.
1. Contact your local courthouse for a birth certificate if your child was born in the county you live in. If not, you can request a birth certificate from Raleigh, NC. 1(919)733-3000
Check with your local Driver's License office to make sure the one from Raleigh is the correct birth certificate. I was told it had to be from the courthouse, not the one I received at my child's birth! The man at the DMV said that's usually the Mother's copy, and that it needs to be a certified birth certificate with a raised seal. (not this kind)
2. For any non-public school that has been registered with NCDNPE for more than 6 months, you may call them at the above number and request a verification of school form. (not sure what the "correct" name for this is) It will be a sheet of paper that has your school info on it, and will be notarized by NCDNPE. This is proof that you have a legitimate, registered school.
This will also have the School ID # in the bottom corner that you will need.
I had to take this with me to the local public school upon registration for driver's education classes.
3. Right after student starts classes, you may call NCDNPE or go online to request a DEC (Driver's Eligibility Certificate), which you will fill in and date right before going to get the permit in case you don't get to go right away -- the DEC is only good for so many days after the date. This will be a notarized half-sheet of paper. When requesting online, you will need the School ID #.
If you call NCDNPE, choose Option 3: Student Driving.
--Leave this information:
- Type of school (homeschool)
- Name of Chief Administrator (parent's name)
- Name of School
- Mailing Address
- Telephone # w/ area code
- Number of Certificates needed
- Child's Birth Certificate
- DEC from NCDNPE
- Certificate issued by the instructor upon completion of actual driving training
- Child's Social Security card
I'm sorry that I have no suggestions on how to get a child's SS card, because I've had my kids' cards since they were born. If anyone does know, please leave a comment, and I'll check it out and update this post.
Remember, if there are any questions, call NCDNPE.
Allow plenty of time for any documents to be mailed to you, and check what hours the courthouse and Driver's License office are open.
