Notice:

I am slowly going through all past science posts, checking videos, adding links for images, etc.
However, I may miss checking every link, and a video that plays today may be removed next week by the person who uploaded it, and you will get some kind of error message when you click play.
So as you view my posts throughout the year, (any posts, not just science!) if there are any unplayable videos, or broken links, or links that do not link to what they are supposed to, just leave a comment on that post and let me know.
I will mark your email and try to find replacements as I am able, but I stay pretty busy, and it can be difficult to keep all posts updated at all times, but I sure do wish I could!
I am sorry for any inconvenience, but if you find a suitable replacement, please do email me!
Thank you so much!

Driver's Permit for NC

1. For driver's permit, contact your local public school for requirements, class dates, and registration.
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.

I wanted to remember what to do for my next 2 kids, so I wrote it all down.  =) This is what I had to do.
1.  You can 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
For my friend in South Carolina, call 1(877)284-1008 to order a birth certificate with your credit or debit card. For all other requirements, check with your local schools and/or DMV.  I don't know of a SCDNPE.  =(
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.
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.
3. I had to take this with me to the local public school upon registration for driver's education classes.
4. 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.
