Frenquetly Asked Questions

Will the Approved Driver's Safety Teen Course work for those who live in Iowa?

Iowa has different requirements for their approved safety course, so unfortunately our course will not count for those who live in Iowa. 

What should I bring to class?

Please bring your learner's permit, a writing utensil, paper, driver manual, and a lunch or snack. I-pads/ tablets will be allowed for note taking purposes only. 

Do I need a learner's permit to take the class?

Yes. You will need to have your learner's permit by the first class date.

When will student drive times be scheduled?

Drive times will be scheduled with the student's driving instructor during the classroom time. Students should bring their schedules and available dates and times to class. Every student will be given their driving instructor's name and phone number in class. Please contact the driving instructor directly regarding drive time and scheduling.

What if I am unable to attend a drive time?

Unless it is an emergency or sickness, we ask students to give the driving instructor at least 24 hour notice when cancelling or rescheduling a driving session. If a student misses a drive time, without notifying Cornhusker Driving School within 24 hours of the drive time, a $45.00 fee will be requested. Please review our full classroom procedure and absence policy here.

How do I change my drive time?

To change a drive time, the student or parent must call the driving instructor at least 24 hours in advance of the original driving session. Please review our full classroom procedure and absence policy here.

What if I am unable to attend a class?

Please make sure class session you chose does not conflict with any doctor appointments, sports, vacation, etc. Students will have to retake the classroom portion for any time missed during the 20 hours. THERE WILL BE NO EXCEPTIONS. We do not allow students to miss scheduled class times for jobs, school activities, special interests or sporting events. Please review our full classroom procedure and absence policy here.

What if I fail my drive test?

We give the students two chances to pass the test within the last session of driving. If the student does not pass the test within the assigned time, we will have to schedule an additional drive session to re-test. We do charge a $45.00 fee for a student to re-test after the first two attempts.

We will let you know if your student is not ready to test, and will discuss practice time with your student and allow them a later date to test if they are not prepared for the final drive test.

After I pass my drive test, when and how do I apply for my POP?

You can obtain a Provisional Operator's Permit (POP) online here if you meet ALL THREE of the following requirements:

a) have held a School Learner's Permit, Learner's Permit, School Permit or combination for at least six months,
b) hold a School Permit or have completed a DMV-approved driver safety course after 1-1-2013, AND
c) are at least 60 days from your 16th birthday and under age 18.
Note: This document will NOT be produced until the day of your 16th birthday.

What if I lose my Driver Education Certificates?

There is a $15.00 fee (check, cash or money order) for the re-issuance of the white insurance certificate. The request needs to be in writing (Please include students full name, address, date of birth and the year and location they took the class). The request must accompany the fee and be mailed to:
