Virginia driver's license process made easy



Registration can be done online or at the school.

If registering for a classroom course like the Driver Improvement Course or the Driver's Manual Course we can accept your information by phone at (757) 926-5956



Students or parents must sign a student driver contract before the course can begin. Contracts can be completed at the school with an appointment.

If you register online then the contract will be sent via email and it can returned via email or fax.



Payment can be made in-person or online.

We accept cash, money order or cards.

Business checks are accepted.

However, personal checks are not accepted unless we have been notified in advance that it is the necessary payment method.

Driver Education


We provide a online driver education course year-round. The course can be completed at your own pace and then the final exam is taken at the school.

If you require a classroom in-person course we only offer that during the summer, usually 1 or 2 courses are scheduled between May and August.

Pick Up & Drop Off


Behind-the-Wheel Course & Driving Lessons ONLY

Free for local students.

Out-of-town pick up & drop off has an extra fee.

We can pick up from home, school, work, etc. with advance notice of different locations.

Driver's License


Teen drivers are handed their provisional driver's license after they complete their 9 month holding period for a learner's permit and have completed Virginia's driver education program.

We cannot issue a license to adult drivers. Adult drivers will receive an Adult Waiver certificate that when submitted to DMV will result in a driver's license being issued.
