*If a student is forced to miss a class meeting due to an emergency or sickness, the classroom instructor will hold one make-up class at a time determined by the instructor.
*If a student misses more than one class, it is at the discretion of the classroom instructor to determine if the student will be allowed to make-up the time.
*If special arrangements need to be made to accommodate a student, there will be a charge of $40 per hour (in one hour increments).
Any student that does not meet the requirement of 20 hours in the classroom will fail Driver Education and will NOT receive a refund.
