Yes. The school and all of our courses have been approved and licensed by the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles.
You are not required to take any class or training prior to getting a learner's permit. You must take the permit test at the DMV. The DMV permit test questions come directly from the Virginia DMV Driver's Manual that is free to pick up at any DMV or driving school.
Can I still take Driver Education? Sure, but consider two things.
Yes. You must have a learner's permit or any legal document that states you can legally be the driver of a vehicle.
No. Our vehicles are automatic transmission.
No. Students transferring from another state will be required to surrender their out-of-state learner's permits, and take and pass Virginia's knowledge and sign tests. The time that the student has held the out-of-state learner's permit will be counted as practice driving toward Virginia's 9-month minimum holding period for a juvenile or 60-day minimum holding period for an adult.
Yes, but only if you are taking both classes at the same school. If you are taking driver education at high school or another driving school, then you cannot start behind-the-wheel until you have completed the course and received your certificate of completion.
Parents are welcome to sit in a classroom session if space permits. Parents are not permitted to sit in for driving lessons. The student is often nervous and anxious in the presence of a parent, and that is not a good environment for a student to learn how to drive or for the instructor to teach driving skills.
Most GPS maps do not recognize our address because the street name does not appear on the map. Our address is 878 J Clyde Morris Boulevard, Newport News, VA 23601. We are in the Newport Square Shopping Center behind Burger King at the intersection of J Clyde Morris Boulevard and Diligence Drive.
We have had previous success working with high-functioning autistic students, students with ADD, students with anxiety, and ESL students. We highly recommend you speak with a staff member so that we can work out a plan that works best for you. ESL students can bring an interpreter if needed, at no additional cost.
We do not provide driving instruction if you have a disability that requires special equipment.
