Adult Driving School
How to get a driver's license with no 60-day waiting period if you are already a proficient driver.
Step 1 – Classroom
In order for us to license you, we have to give you Classroom as well as Behind-the-Wheel Driver’s Ed. If you don’t have a learner’s permit yet, Classroom will prepare you to pass your knowledge test. If you already have your learner’s permit, then you can take Classroom with us in person or online concurrently with your Behind-the-Wheel course.
Step 2 – Learner’s Permit
Everyone must take the knowledge test at DMV in order to get a learner’s permit. If you fail three times, you have to take the 3-Fail course before you can attempt the test again. Our Driver’s Ed Classroom course satisfies your -Fail requirement, or you can take our 8 hour Driver Manual Course.
Step 3 – Behind-the-Wheel
Adult Behind-the-Wheel consists of 7 in-car group lessons covering neighborhood, city, and suburban driving. Note: this is not a TEACHING COURSE. The purpose is to let you prove you are proficient in driving so we can license you. If you need to LEARN TO DRIVE, then we have private lessons for you.
Step 4 – Road Test
After you complete Classroom and Behind-the-Wheel, we can administer your DMV road test and give you your driver’s license. There is no need to wait 60 days or go to the DMV to be tested. We can do everything in-house, with no waiting period.
Drivers Education (classroom)
The classroom portion of Adult Drivers Education is a comprehensive overview of how to drive safely and responsibly in the state of Virginia. Students gain a working knowledge of Virginia laws, rules of the road, emergency procedures, vehicle maintenance, and much more. The course is held every month, with rolling enrollment, and is 30 hours long. It satisfies the 3-Fail requirement for students who failed their learner’s permit test 3 times. If you wish to be licensed through Colonial Driving School with no waiting period, you must take Adult Classroom and Adult Behind-the-Wheel.
Adult Behind-the-Wheel consists of 7 lessons in a specially equipped DMV inspected driving school vehicle. Each lesson consists of 50 minutes of driving, and 50 minutes of observing another adult student drive. In these lessons, students have the opportunity to demonstrate their proficiency in all areas of driving including highways, city traffic, and various kinds of parking. On the 7th lesson, if the student is prepared, the instructor may administer the DMV Road Test, and if the student passes, he can get his license from us that same day! Note: Students may need to supplement with outside practice and Private Lessons in order to be able to pass their road test.
