New Enrollment
Terms & Conditions

After reading this document, and signing after enrolling, I have permission to take the driver training program administered by The Next Street. I understand that the course will be conducted by a state licensed instructor from The Next Street. I release the school from liability for any accident or injury occurring while driving as a part of this program.


Age Restriction Guidelines 

  1. All students attending The Next Street must be 15 & 9 months or older to receive credit for any classroom modules or in-car training. 
  2. Students of any age can take the maximum of 6 hours of Driver's Ed training per day. Only 2 hours may be in-car, either observing or driving.


Digital Classroom Policies

  1. Participation - Students must participate in the entire 2-hour session on Zoom. Our instructors take attendance multiple times each class. Participation means responding to the instructor's questions verbally or in chat, engaging in group activities & completing in-class quizzes when offered.
  2. Signature Requirement - Students must sign that they attended the full 2-hour session for every class. Parent/Guardian must sign for the Parent Class they complete.  
  3. Legal Name as Display Name - Please make sure that your full legal name, as spelled on your Learner's Permit, appears on your Zoom account. If you have a nickname you prefer to be called, you can add it after a dash in your legal name, EX: James Smith - Jim.
  4. Devices - Students must be on a stationary device, and it is recommended they be on a stable network. If a student is disconnected from class more than once, they will not be given credit for the class. 
  5. Cameras On - During class, your camera must be on and pointed towards you on a stable/steady surface. Please do not point your camera at the ceiling, ground, or other areas of your room.
  6. Please Come Ready to Learn & Take Notes - You should be seated upright, in a quiet location, where you can remain focused and present for the duration of the class. We recommend, and research shows, that using a physical notebook and taking notes by hand supports learning and recall. 
  7. Show Up & Be on Time - You must be fully present for the entire duration of class in order to get credit. One scheduled break will be given mid-class. Attendance will be taken at the start of class, after break, and at the end of class. You must be active and present during these checks in order to be marked present. 
  8. Avoid Digital Multitasking - We understand the pull to do things while in a Zoom meeting, like scrolling on your phone, playing games, or checking your DM's. We challenge you to focus on the class materials in the same way you will have to focus (without distractions) while driving.

Our instructors have the discretion to revoke attendance for any of the following reasons but are not limited to:

  1. Tardiness
  2. Disruption
  3. Lack of participation
  4. Tech issues
  5. Leaving early
  6. Inappropriate language or behavior.

The RMV requires that the Parent Class is completed before booking any driving or observation lessons. The Parent Class is valid for 5 years from the date of completion. Your program must be completed in full by the expiration of that certificate.

Modules 1-15 must be completed before taking the final exam that is pass or fail. If the final is taken before completing 1-15, you will not receive credit.

Refund Guidelines

You must pay for what you use. If you attend one class or the class start date has passed, you will need to pay for the entire course. This is because you have held a seat that another student could have used. Unused products may be transferred to a sibling. Unused classes may only be transferred if the start date has not passed. Unfortunately, we are charged for Credit Card payments and refunds. Because of that all refunds are subject to a maximum of 10% service fee. Purchases must be made within 1 year to be eligible for a refund.

  • If you opt out of any marketing communications via email such as unsubscribe, or modify your email preferences, you are still responsible for adhering to the contents of those communications.
