- Once the student attends the first class session, there is no refund.
- All students must pass the classroom and driving portion to receive their certificate and for us to submit their waiver to the DMV. The driving portion is determined by the driving instructor based on the students proficiency applying the classroom material in the vehicle. The driving instructor will test the student in accordance DMV regulations. The classroom portion is determined by the students participation, quality of assignments, proficiency on quizzes and tests throughout the three day class. The instructors will pass or fail the student based on their ability to complete the above requirements.
- The student, in accordance with state requirements*, is required to complete all classroom and driving sessions within a 180 day period. Any student who does not complete the course (including all driving) within the 180 day period will receive a failing grade. Students who fail the course are welcome to retake the course, but will be charged the cost of registration. *The State of Nebraska Department of Motor Vehicles requires the drive test be passed within 180 days of the written examination.
- If a student is caught cheating they will be dismissed from the course. No refund is available.
Behind the wheel cancellation:
Unless it is an emergency or sickness, we ask students to give us 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 below. Excessive cancellations (three or more) may result in failure of the course.
We do not want to have to install a charge for missed classes so we ask that you commit to all class times or choose another class that would work better for your student’s schedule. We do allow students to miss if they are sick personally or a family member is sick, in the hospital or has passed away. However, we will no longer allow students to miss scheduled class times for school activities, special interests and sporting events. Emergencies only. Please review our full classroom procedure and absence policy below. If we feel that the student is not fulfilling these requirements, we will inform you and take further action.
Cornhusker Driving School Classroom Procedure and Absence Policy
In the past we have allowed students to miss a class due to different reasons. We have found that it is becoming a problem and disruption to other classes when students from previous classes are making up times in new classes. We do not want to have to install a charge for missed classes so we ask that you commit to all class times or choose another class that would work better for your student’s schedule. We do allow students to miss if they are sick personally or a family member is sick, in the hospital or has passed away. We will no longer allow students to miss scheduled class times for school activities, special interests and sporting events. Emergencies only. We have the right to remove students from the class if we feel that is an issue.
As for the drive times, we ask the students give us at least 24 hours’ notice (unless again it is emergency or sickness) when canceling or rescheduling a scheduled driving session. Our instructors carry cellular phones but are scheduled in the way that their lessons are back to back. Drive times are easier to reschedule when we are notified as soon as possible. To change a drive time, the student or parent must call the driving instructor and change appointed times with him. The students should have their instructor’s number, or you can call the secretary to get their number. 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.
The student is also required to complete a driving test conducted by Cornhusker Driving School. We can only give the driving test for those students who are 14-17 years of age. Although an 18-20 year old can take our course for insurance purposes, we are not allowed to give the driving portion of the test for the State of Nebraska for anyone who is not 14-17 years of age. 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 $45.00 for a student to re-test past the first two chances of testing. We will let you know if your student is not ready to test so that we can avoid extra charges for re-testing. We will discuss practice time your student and allow them a later date to test if they are not prepared for the final drive test.
Students are required by the State of Nebraska Department of Motor Vehicles to complete 20 hours of classroom, 2-5 hours of driving (depending on experience) and a drive test. All of these must be completed before the waiver form and insurance certificate will be issued.
We appreciate your business and hope to help you and your student in any way we can to become a qualified and safe driver. If you have any questions or concerns please contact us at one of the options listed on our contact page.
