The student must be enrolled in driver's education and attend a class session, or complete 30 hours of classroom instruction. Their driving school must sign the MV3001 form. This form will be signed with a parent's consent once their account balance is paid in full. CW Driving School recommends that the form be signed after the 30 hours of curriculum is completed, as an incentive to finish the program promptly. MV3001 forms can only be issued after enrolling and making payment in full.

The student must hold their instruction permit for at least 6 months. The student must also complete 30 hours of classroom instruction and 50 hours of supervised driving. 10 hours must be completed at night time. 12 hours must be completed under the supervision of a licensed instructor.

You need to bring the student’s Social Security Card, a log indicating successful completion of 50 Behind the Wheel hours, and the student’s Instruction Permit. Your parent or guardian will need to enter their driver's license number.
