The DMV has implemented safety measures to minimize customer contact. Driving schools are only permitted to have 1 student and the instructor in a vehicle at a time. Additionally, the 50-minute observation periods are temporarily being waived.
All students and instructors MUST wear a face mask in the vehicle. Gloves can be worn if desired. We ask that students wash their hands before they enter the vehicle. We will continue to sanitize our vehicles and equipment between student appointments and provide students with hand sanitizer.
Any student who feels sick should stay home and reschedule their class period.
The program consists of two (2) classes. Both classes must be completed to take the road test and earn a driver's license from a driver training school.
Any Virginia resident under age 18, must hold a learner's permit for at least nine (9) months and complete this program to be eligible for a driver's license.
The first class of the program must present 36 classroom periods, including components about alcohol safety, drug abuse awareness, aggressive driving, distracted driving, pedestrian and bicycle safety, handicapped parking, fuel-efficient driving practices, motorcycle awareness, and organ and tissue donation awareness.
The online curriculum is available to those who feel comfortable working on a computer and working independently.
The second class of the program must include 14 in-car instruction periods. The class is scheduled for 7 days with 2 instruction periods completed each day. The class must have at least 2 students and no more than 3 students per student driver vehicle. Each class is approximately 2 hours in the vehicle, 50 minutes of driving and 50 minutes of observation.
The road skills test is given during the seventh instruction period. Upon successful completion of the course and the road test, students will have their driver's license issued. If the student's eligibility date for use of the license is more than a month away, then parents' can ask that the driving school hold the license until the eligibility date is closer.
These are NOT driving lessons. You must already be an experienced driver. This is an assessment course of your driving skills for a driver's license. You should walk into this course with the skills needed to qualify to take the DMV Final Road Test.
Additionally, you must complete 45 hours of guided driving practice with a parent or mentor prior to enrolling in behind-the-wheel. A parent or guardian must sign your driver's license stating that this state requirement has been met.
Once you've registered for behind-the-wheel, the school will reach out to you to complete documents and coordinate scheduling. The schedule is dictated by the school's current enrollment list and your availability, typically, most students complete the process in 2 weeks.
When your course begins, please have the following:
Upon completion of your course, your instructor will provide the Final Road Test. If you pass the road test, your instructor will finalize the DMV documentation for your 180-day provisional driver's license.
The temporary driver's license is your Driver Training Program certificate of completion. The blue copy "STUDENT COPY" MUST be held with your learner's permit to be recognized as a valid driver's license. The school will mail the yellow copy "DMV COPY" to the License Work Center in Richmond for processing. The processing of the driver's license could take up to 90 days. Your local court will mail a notice for a juvenile licensing ceremony and that is when you will receive the hard copy of your driver's license. For this reason, make sure the DMV has your correct mailing address so that you do not miss your licensing ceremony.
Only for Hampton, Newport News, Yorktown, Seaford, and Poquoson Pick-up.
