Distance learning and Covid-19
DPS has informed us that the variance for distance learning will continue until the end of the year.
We have finished our summer classes and are trying to catch up on our behind the wheel hours. We are planning to follow our normal schedule and will schedule more classes in the fall between sports and school semesters. Please register on our contact list and we will email you when we have more classes scheduled.
Behind The Wheel:
COVID: We have put numerous precautions in place while doing our behind the wheel lessons. We have installed a barrier between the student and instructor. We disinfect the vehicle between students. We only run outside air while teaching. We eliminated any physical contact exchanging paperwork or payments.
***MASKS: We are not requiring masks at this time, HOWEVER, If the student OR the instructor requests a mask for the lesson the mask WILL be required.***
**New** The Virginia exam station is now open for Road Tests. You must make your appointment online and wait outside the door when you arrive.
All road tests are scheduled ONLINE. You cannot call to schedule a test. Go online to:
