To enroll in the course, the requirements listed below must be met. Please do not submit registration forms with missing requirements. If you have questions about the requirements, please call us at 757-926-5956.
Requirement 1: A valid Virginia learner's permit.
Requirement 2: A Virginia-approved driver education course certificate of completion.
The behind-the-wheel course consists of 7 classes (1 class per day) of in-car instruction. The road skills test is given during the seventh instruction period. Upon successful completion of the course and the road test, students will receive an adult waiver that must be submitted to DMV to have their driver's license issued.
We recommend the student or parent discuss any learning or physical disabilities with us before registering. We appreciate an advance notice in these situations so that we may work together to determine if the student will be successful at our school.
We require all students to wear a face mask or cover in the vehicle. Gloves are recommended but not required. We ask that students wash their hands before they enter the vehicle. We will continue to sanitize our vehicles between student appointments and provide students with hand sanitizer.
Any student who feels sick should stay home and reschedule their class period.
Driving Notice Posted 7/27/2020: Due to a massive volume of customers and a rapidly expanding wait time for driving hours, currently, we are not accepting new driving students. We will reevaluate this policy every week and will begin accepting new students once our backlog of driving hours returns to a wait time range of approximately 5-to-6 weeks or less. Check back often for updates.
Step 1: Complete and submit the registration form.
Step 2: A contract will be drafted based on the information provided on your registration and sent by email. Respond to the email and return the contract signed.
Step 3: You will receive a tentative schedule for review by email. Confirm the schedule or ask for changes.
Step 4: Pay the 40% non-refundable deposit of the course fee. Or pay the course fee in full through our online store.
Individuals should be able to demonstrate proficiency in driving skills. The behind-the-wheel course does not include teaching a student how to drive. Students should already be a skilled, experienced driver to show that they are prepared for a driver's license.
However, if a student needs to be taught skills or how to drive we can include teaching skills for a higher fee. Students entering this course with minimal or no skills and experience should know that 6.5 hours of driving may not be enough time to learn and perform the skills necessary for a driver's license and should plan to practice on their own time.
The Driver Education Program is not required for adults applying for a driver's license. Individuals age 18 and older must hold the learner's permit for a period of 60 days before they can return to the DMV to take the road test. Road test applicants must complete and submit the CSMA 19 form (downloads below) with a licensed driver when arriving to take the road test.
