In-car Course Length: The Virginia State drivers' education program consists of two phases. The in-car
phase consists of a minimum of seven periods of actual driving and seven period of observation. Normally
two periods of instructions are given during each session. The Observation requirement has been suspended at this time due the COVID-19 pandemic, by order from Governor of VA.

Students 19 Years of age and under are required to complete a state approved driver's education program prior to receiving a driver's license; Student must present proof of 36 periods of classroom completion prior to the in-car course.
Students 19 years of age and older may hold the learner’s permit for 60 days in lieu of completing a driver training course.
Scheduling: Each period of instruction is 50 minutes. In- car students are responsible for scheduling in-car instructions. We have found that scheduling your next lesson while in-car works best
