Skip the Trip
We have some exciting news!
We’ve partnered with the Iowa Department of Transportation (DOT) to offer Skip the Trip at Greene County High School. This program allows students to take the driver knowledge test required to obtain a driver’s instruction permit here at Greene County High School, saving you time by reducing multiple trips to driver’s service centers if your student does not pass on his/her first try.
To be eligible to take the remote knowledge test, your student must be age 14 or older and not currently hold an Iowa instruction permit. The knowledge test will be administered by an approved school/agency official, and the test results will be emailed to the student and retained in the Iowa DOT’s customer records.
The student will still need to go into a driver’s license service center with their parent or legal guardian to be issued an instruction permit. Once a student has successfully completed the test, they will receive a test receipt email. Bring a copy of the email to the driver’s license service center, along with the other required identity documentation (listed below) the student must have to be issued their instruction permit.
What documents need to be brought to a service center to receive an instruction permit? (Can also be found at http://www.iowadot.gov):
• Proof of age and identity (U.S. birth certificate, U.S. Passport, or proof of lawful status documentation)
• Proof of Iowa residency (Two documents showing the student’s address)
• Proof of your social security number (Social Security card)
• Parental consent form, if you are under 18 and your parent is unable to come with you to the service center (not required if parent or legal guardian is present)
To prepare for a successful knowledge test, students should study the Iowa Driver’s Manual and online practice test, both available at: https://iowadot.gov/mvd/driverslicense/manuals-and-practice-tests
