About the Course & Exam
The course is PowerPoint presentation with an accompanying workbook. Class participation and discussion is encouraged. Class discussion helps the instructor identify and address student problem areas.
At the end of the presentation and class discussion, a final exam with 50 multiple choice questions is given. To receive certification, a minimum of 80% is required on the exam. The course completion certificate is passed out at the end of the course.
If you fail the final exam, you may return to take the exam again at no additional charge. However, per Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles rules, you can only take the final exam once per calendar day.
