BTW Practice and Scheduling Drives: It is 911 Driving School’s practice to have two students in the

911 Driving School permission to conduct BTW (Behind the Wheel) training in a one-on-one setting. Students
must complete a minimum of 3 drives by course end date. Any remaining drives must be completed within 3
weeks of course end date. All Drives must be scheduled outside of classroom time.
Some students may need more practice time with an instructor. Additional drive sessions may be purchased.

drive or arrives late for the scheduled drive. 1 day, (24 hrs.) cancellation notice is required to avoid fee. Log
on to your account to cancel.
A $40.00 fee is charged if the student does not bring a valid Instruction permit to a drive or does not wear

circumstances. Notification of any and all changes will be communicated to parents and students as soon as
possible in order to cause the least amount of inconvenience to our customers. Changes will only be made if
there are no other viable options available.

turned off and kept out of sight during classroom and Behind the Wheel instruction. Students can be
dismissed from the course for misbehavior, excessive tardiness, excessive or unexcused absences, cheating

the instructional phases, misuse or abuse of Traffic Safety Education equipment, repeated and willful violation

Parent Involvement: Parent involvement is critical for the student’s success. 50 hours of supervised driving is
required by Washington State prior to receiving a Driver’s license. All students must be able to demonstrate
basic driving skills before we can issue a course completion. If an instructor believes a student is not ready for
their next drive, parents will be contacted to discuss options. Extra drives, whether desired or required are
$50.00 per hour. This can be avoided by parent involvement.
Organ Donor: Washington State requires 911 Driving School to provide parents/students with Washington
State’s Organ Donor Program information. Please see letter in Student packet. The video will be reviewed
during class 15.

the payment of any outstanding fees, Student’s course completion information will be entered into the
Department of Licensing’s database.

scores will be entered directly into the Department of Licensing system.
Should your student fail their driving course, students may re-enroll at the cost of a full tuition. No refunds
given for course failures or failure to comply with school policies.
