Abbreviated Adult Course

Starting July 1, 2017, adults age 18 and older who previously have never held a valid driver license and who fail their first attempt at the maneuverability test and/or road test are required to take an Abbreviated Adult Training Course.  The course will consist of one of the following options;

  • 4 hours of classroom & 4 hours with a licensed instructor; or
  • 4 hours of online & 4 hours with a licensed instructor; or
  • 4 hours of classroom & 24 hours of driving with any licensed driver age 21 years and older; or

Applicants who opt to complete the 24 hours of driving with any licensed driver age 21 and older cannot complete more than 4 hours of driving in one day.
