DMV Driver Eligibility Certificate - Summer Months
At this time parents/guardians that have students needing the DMV Driver Eligibility Certificate to take their driver’s test during summer months will need to email (no phone messages) Judy Stalnaker (firstname.lastname@example.org) during the week of May 18 through June 15, 2020. Please include student’s whole name (including middle) and current mailing address. Summer request forms will be processed as quickly as possible and the certificate issued. Upon completion of the certificate, the parent/guardian will receive a return email indicating that the certificate can be picked up at the Gilmer County Board of Education Office between the hours of 8 - 4 or it can be mailed to the home address. The DMV requires a pen and ink signature so the certificate cannot be emailed or faxed. The certificate will be valid during summer months. The window for the summer DMV Driver Eligibility Certificate is May 18 – June 15 with a prior email request. Social distancing is being observed at the GCBOE. Please do not come to the Gilmer County Board of Education Office in person needing the DMV Driver Eligibility Certificate without first submitting the email request and then having the confirmation email. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
