Payment Plan Policy

High Desert Driver Education is a state-subsidized program through the High Desert Education Service District. Driver education is a very important program, but we understand the tuition may be difficult for families to pay all at once. We have introduced a Payment Plan Program to hopefully make this easier to manage.

 

When Registering:

  • Choose the payment plan option at the end of the form.  This will be considered your first payment.
  • Please keep in mind that the last payment should be made 2 weeks prior to the last day of class. Exception: since summer courses are only 5 weeks, payment is due before the last class.

***Payment in full and successful completion of the course requirements will grant your student completion credit in their school and they will receive an ODOT-certified waiver card (if under age 18 and not licensed).
