You will need a driver's license or social security number. Bring this Permit with you to the class. After passing the Certification Exam, this Exam Permit will be stamped that evening and it will serve as a temporary license until you receive the official one in the mail.  There are no other costs associated with this class and Exam.  If you are attending, please come a few minutes early on Monday for registration.
