If your student is at least 14 ½ years old, they may register to take Driver Education through Jordan Driving School Charlotte. Residency in Mecklenburg County does not determine Driver Education eligibility; where the student attends school is the determining factor and since Bradford Prep is in Mecklenburg County, students attending our school take Driver's Ed through Jordan Driving School. Classes are held on nearby Traditional Public School campuses such as Mallard Creeek High School and Vance High School. Once students have completed both the classroom piece and the driving portion, they are able to apply for a Learners Permit at the DMV when they turn 15 years old. Student's must bring a Driving Eligibility Certificate with them when they apply for the Learner Permit. Please allow 72 hours from the time you request the certificate in the front office to the time you pick it up as we need to confirm that the student is in good standing and have the certificate signed by the Director.
