In School Permit testing program is a go

             Keota High School is taking advantage of the Keokuk County In School Permit Testing being offered in the school, at no cost to parents and students.  This is a time and travel solution created by the Iowa Department of Transportation (DOT).

            Students must be 14 years old and pass the permit test to be issued a drivers permit in the state of Iowa.  Normally, this is only available at the county courthouse between 8 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

            The new program, which has previously only been available at Tri-County School District, is web-based and only requires a proctor from the school district to have the ability to provide the testing for all eligible students.

            The first date the testing will be offered at the high school will be Wednesday, April 4, during first period. Mike Williams will be testing proctor.
