Individual lessons are offered in 1, 3, 5, 7, and 10 lesson packages to prepare for the Virginia DMV road test administered at the DMV. These lessons are for 18+ year old students and do not count towards the “Adult 18+ Drivers License” that we offer. The student and instructor together will determine how many lessons are required. For most students 3 or 5 lessons are typical.
Advantages to the adult student:
- Build confidence with proper techniques for the DMV road test.
- Reduce road-test anxiety at the DMV.
The 7 lesson offering also re-certifies students that failed the DMV road test 3 times. At the end of lesson 7, the student will receive a signed DMV form DTS-C (Recertification Form) which they will present to the DMV and be allowed to retake the DMV road test, at the DMV until they pass.
NOTE: You must have your learners permit prior to beginning lessons.
Scheduling preferences (priorities) are as follows:
- Students currently enrolled or previously completed the RVA Driving Academy Driver Education classroom or the RVA Driver Manual Course.
- Students that have demonstrated driving experience or many hours of driving practice.
- Student’s learners permit has matured (2 months since the issue date).
- Students providing 2-3 week advanced notice of behind-the-wheel scheduling needs
Strict adherence to these preferences will occur during peak service periods.
