    How To Register:

    1. Watch the online video on how to get your permit.
    2. Go to the DOL website and get a permit # by inserting all pertinent information.
    3. Pay online on the "how to pay" link below.  This reserves your seat.
    4. Download this DOL packet to your computer, fill it out and the completed packet can be returned using the submit button or printed and brought to Granite Falls High School.  Packets are also available at the ASB office at Granite Falls High School.
    5. The cost is $490, which includes both the DOL Knowledge Test and the DOL Skills Test. You also earn a .5 elective credit.   
    6. You will eventually go to the DOL to get your eyes checked and your picture taken, but you don't have to, to obtain the permit. 
    7. Do not try to go to the DOL until you have visited their website and registered under license express (top right corner of the webpage). Once registered, we need your permit number to insert you into their system stating that you are registered in the class. 
    8. You cannot get the permit until 10 days prior to class. This is state law.
