Upon completion of all requirements, the school will send an authorization to the RMV stating you have completed the program. The RMV will then issue a driver's education certificate. This will not be mailed to you. It is electronically put on your driver history; you can verify your certificate at the website.

Q. How can I schedule a road test?

We cannot tell you the exact date or location until we receive it from the Registry. If you choose not to take the test with us, you can call the RMV and schedule your own appointment.
