Learner's Permit

Attendance & Progress form for Learner's Permit

The State of Tennessee asks parents/guardians to provide a proof of school attendance and progress form (It's called the SF-1010 form) from a current Tennessee school or a letter from the school in your previous state that confirms your student's attendance and satisfactory progress during enrollment in that school. Please refer to the TN.gov Drivers Services website for more information on what you need to do for your student to get their Learner's Permit.

NSA provides two options in providing you this form:

Option 1(preferred): Fill out the SF-1010 form by downloading this copy. (If you are not an NSA student, you will need to remove "Jeremy Lee" at the bottom of the page and take this to the main office of your school.) Bring the filled out copy to the main office or scan and send it in email to [email protected]. You or your student will then need to pick up the signed copy in the main office.

Option 2:  Have your student get an SF-1010 form from the Front Desk and fill it out. 

  • The form will need to be filled out in black ink with no errors or mess-ups.
  • The School System Name, Mailing address, County and Phone number need to be filled out as follows: 
    • School System Name: MNPS 
    • 2601 Bransford Ave
    • Nashville, TN 37210
    • Phone:615-259-4636
    • County: Davidson
  • Once the form is filled out, the Attendance Clerk will need to sign it and take a sheet out for our records before giving it back to the student to submit to the DMV.

Please Note:

If the student is failing 3 or more core classes at the time they need the form, it will not be signed.

If the student is considered truant at the time they need the form, it will not be signed.

This letter must be signed and dated by the principal, attendance clerk or guidance counselor no more than 30 days prior to your Tennessee application.
