Alternatively, East High School is also partnered with Iowa’s Skip The Trip program. This program allows students to take the written exam at school for their driving permit. Once a student passes the exam, they have 180 days to obtain their permit at one of the DOT sites in the metro.

Written exams are proctored on a monthly basis with Madeline Cano, East Community School Coordinator. Please email her at to sign up for an exam.  Students must bring their own laptops to the permit exam at school. Additional information on obtaining a driver’s license can be found here.
