Georgia Driver’s Education Grant Scholarship Program
Information for Students/Parents:
Beginning in January of 2017, the Georgia Driver’s Education Commission will begin a new scholarship program in which students may apply for a driver’s education grant scholarship. The student will apply for the scholarship directly from the Commission through an online application. Upon award of the scholarship, students will be provided with a redemption code and may choose a provider from a list of authorized driver training schools to redeem the grant scholarship. The driver training school will redeem the grant scholarship through an online portal. Once the student has completed the driver’s education course, the provider will upload a copy of the OCRA certificate to the online portal and request reimbursement for the driver’s education course. Due to IT infrastructure delays, the student application will be available on March 1, 2017. Please check this website for updates as information will posted as soon as it becomes available, including a link to the student application.
Information for Driver Training Schools:
Driver training schools may apply to become an authorized provider at any time. There is no deadline to apply. Please see the documents below for more information.
