What They're SayingAbout the class

"Virginia began allowing online classes since July 1, 2009. I took the class in late July or early August and the court clerk was skeptical when I presented her with the certificate. She said I was the first to bring her an online certificate. After jumping through some legal hoops, fingerprinting, background checks, etc., I received my permit in less than a week. I'm in a rural area and attending a class meant driving one or more hours. Thank you so much. It is a great time saver and very informative." Mr. T.R., Ceres
