As of July 2, 2020, driving schools have been authorized to return to the directive that allows for minimized customer contact during driver training by:
No. Driving schools can only administer the road skills test to their students, both juveniles and adults that successfully complete the driver education program including classroom and behind-the-wheel instruction.
If your license has been revoked you are not eligible for an Adult Waiver. Adult Waivers may only be issued to a person age 18 or older who has never held a license.
A person age 18 or older must hold a Virginia learner's permit and a Virginia-approved driver education certificate to qualify for the driver education program. No exceptions.
Yes. The two-student minimum was waived temporarily to ensure the safety and wellbeing of students. Effective, June 12, 2020, any school in a Phase Two locality can go back to business as usual.
If the driving school has already contracted with parents and started training students based on Phase One then training for those students can be completed under Phase One guidelines and then start Phase Two. Any students registered after June 22, 2020, must adhere to Phase Two guidelines.
Update July 6, 2020 - The two-student minimum has been waived and will stay in effect until the end of Phase Three of the easing of certain temporary restrictions due to COVID-19, or unless sooner amended, or rescinded.
No. DMV does not recognize nor has any form of virtual or webinar training as computer-based (online) training for the classroom component of driver's education.
A maximum of three months of appointment slots are available at any time on the calendar. Each day, a new day of appointments is added to the end of the available 90-day period.
New appointment slots will be posted multiple times every hour. Cancellations can also create earlier availability in the calendar. If you do not see availability, all the posted appointment slots are currently booked.
NOTE: Road skills testing (behind-the-wheel) for passenger vehicles and motorcycles is offered at specific locations. Visit dmvNOW.com/skillstest for more information on DMV’s new passenger vehicle road testing process. If you come into any issues you will need to contact the DMV, as the driving school cannot help with these services.
