*A paper copy of driving log will need to be presented at the time a student takes the road test. Be sure to make a copy of the log, in case the child needs to retake the behind the wheel exam. You will need to present it again. Those students who do not have a parent certificate of attendance at a supplemental class will need to do the 50 hours of supervised driving.
