Student Driver Information
Getting your driver's permit?
A Compulsory Attendance letter is required as proof of school attendance when a student applies for their driver’s permit.
If the student already has a driver’s permit that is issued in the state of Tennessee and it has not expired, they will not need this letter to take the driver’s license test or to renew a permit (the state already has a letter on file from when the student initially took their permit test).
If the student has a license or permit from another state, or their Tennessee permit is expired, they will need this letter.
Parking Pass Application:
To purchase a parking pass for the 21-22 school year, you must have a valid Driver's License and have taken the Checkpoint Training class. You can then complete the Parking Permit application. Please only complete the application one time.
Parking Pass Payment:
After submitting the application, the $15 payment for the pass should be paid through the Online Fee Payment Portal. Students will be called down to Student Services to receive their parking pass.
