When can a student get a temporary permit?
Students may obtain a temporary permit when they turn 15 1/2. It is not necessary to take the class before getting the temporary permit. Students should practice driving with parents or guardians as much as possible after getting their temporary permit.

How do high school students get their permit?
Students may obtain their permit before taking the KDS class by doing the following:

  • Study the Digest of Motor Vehicle Laws.
  • Go to the Bureau of Motor Vehicles with social security card, birth certificazte, parent/guardian, and take the written test.
  • Upon passing the test go to the Bureau of Motor Vehicles and purchase your permit. (approx. $22.00)

How are students scheduled for driving?
Students phone in their temporary permit number and validation date to the Napoleon office after at least two hours of classroom work has been completed. The Manager will call the student's home to make three appointments for the student's driving instruction. However, students cannot drive and attend class the same day. Students may also inform the instructor the first day of class to put their name on the driving list to get scheduled to drive.

What if students lose their permits?
If students lose their permit they must repurchase the packet. Students may not have to retest. The 6 month waiting period is not affected. Effective November 3, 2008, the BMV began issuing new DL's and ID's. There is no longer a "table of contents" on the back of the DL or ID with the entire list of driving restrictions; if the holder of the license or temporary permit has a restriction that will be the only thing on the back of the card. There is a slight rearrangement of the information on the front. The permit will be the ID card.

How long are the driving sessions?
Students must have a total of 8 hours of instruction behind the wheel (state regulation). Each session generally lasts 2 to 3 hours. Students need their permits and identification cards to drive.

Is a pickup service available?
KDS has a pickup service for driving instruction sessions. The service is free to students who live within the KDS service area.

What is done to insure safety in the car?
The instructors are well trained and experienced. The cars are well maintained. The cars are equipped with cellular phones, flares, first aid kits, and fire extinguishers. Medical information forms about students are also in the car.

How do high school students obtain their drivers license?
Students are required to hold their temporary permit for six months. Students must carry their Permit in order to drive.

They can then call the examination station after receiving a Certificate of Completion from Key Driving School. Their parent/guardian must submit a notarized form at the examination station stating the student driver has driven at least 50 hours, 10 of which were driven at night. Take the certificate of completion of driver ed, the temporary permit, and social security card to the test site.

How can students practice for the maneuverability test
