To the Parents and Students:


We are very excited to have this opportunity to work with you and your child. One of our goals at Deluxe Driving Academy is to make sure this is an enjoyable and memorable experience for everyone. We have met with the Instructors and they have requested that we address some issues they have dealt with in the past. We ask that you take a minute, read through these rules, and make sure your child understands them as well. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you on May 26th at 8:00 a.m.

The classroom sessions will be held at the IKM-Manning High School. The cost of this class is $350 for in district students. Any out of district students the cost for this class is $375. For in district students only if you qualify for free and reduced meals there is a possibility of a discount available, see the school for details. In order to hold this class, there will need be a minimum of 15 students signed up or the class will be canceled.  No students will be allowed to enroll after the class starts for any reason.


All paperwork for in district students must go through the school and checks are to be written to IKM-Manning School District. All out of district students must go through Deluxe Driving Academy and all paperwork must be mailed to our office to the PO Box listed at the top of this form.




        In order to complete this course each student is required to have thirty (30) hours of classroom and six (6) hours of Behind-the-Wheel instruction. Schedules will be available to sign up for drive times at the classroom sessions, not before. It is important that the student is on time for all drive times, the Instructors are paid by the hour, any unexcused absence of a scheduled drive time will result in a $25.00 fee payable before a Certificate is released. Certificates will be filed electronically with in seven to ten days after the students last class or last drive is completed, whichever is later.


      Students are not allowed to miss more than two classes, or they will fail. The two classes must be made up within 30 days unless other arrangements have been made. You may do this at another location, which could be an hour away.


        It is important that the student is on time for all drive times, the Instructors are paid by the hour, any unexcused absence of a scheduled drive time will result in a $25.00 fee payable before a certificate is released. We do work with the parents and students and have numerous Instructors that teach Behind-the-Wheel. One of the benefits for Deluxe Driving students is, we allow them to sign up for drive times and do not dictate it. We feel this is a strong benefit with all the extracurricular activities students are involved in.


        A book will be assigned to the students at the beginning of the first class. Your student will be responsible for this book and must return it at the last class. A certificate of completion will NOT be issued if the book is not returned in good condition. Students should bring a notebook and pencil so they can take notes. Pencils will not be distributed if you forget yours.


         Each student must attend every classroom session to receive their Certificate of Completion, this is mandated by the State of Iowa. If for some reason a class is missed the student will have to make up the class at another location or in the next session. We do not allow more than two sessions to be missed and made up. Due to all the information and drive schedules being handed out and done during the first class, if you student cannot make the first class then please consider not signing your student up for this class and signing them up for a different class that they can attend.  Once a student has completed three classes, either two classroom sessions and a driving session and/or two drive sessions and one classroom session, or any combination of three classes, there will be not refund given.


        The students need to remember to bring their permit with them when they are scheduled to drive. Once again, we appreciate and value your business. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us so that we may help you.
