According to North Carolina legislation, a student must have a Driving Eligibility Certificate in order to receive a North Carolina driver’s permit or license. This certificate will be issued upon completion of the Driver’s Education course and with evidence of the student’s adequate academic progress. The Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) will not issue a driver’s permit or license without a Driving Eligibility Certificate.
Adequate academic progress means that a student must pass 3 out of 4 courses each semester. Adequate academic progress is evaluated at the end of each semester. A student who does not meet this criterion or who drops out of school will be reported to the DMV and will have his permit or license revoked.
