RE-EXAMINATION CLASS / The 3-Fail Re-examination course is for individuals who have failed the learner’s test three times. If this happens you are required to take this course before being allowed to take the test again. The information below is from the Virginia DMV website. Depending on the age and if the classroom portion of Driver Education has been taken there are a couple of different options. After the DMV information, I explain it a little more. Below that, I will have the applications for all the courses.
If the test taker is under 18 taking the classroom portion of Driver Education will count for the students required Driver Education class needed to obtain a license. It will also allow the student to retake the Learners Test at DMV. We just ask the student lets us know on the first day of class so we know to issue a re-examination certificate upon completion. If the student has already taken the Driver Education class the 8-hour Driver’s Manual course is all that is required to retest.
If the test taker is 18 or over there are a couple of different options. The first option is to take the 8-hour Driver’s Manual course or to take the classroom portion of Driver Education. The reason taking the Driver Education course is beneficial is that if you were to take that with a Behind the Wheel course you could also receive the adult waiver form. This form you take to DMV to receive your license without having to wait the required 60 days and without having to take the Road Test at DMV.
