Updated September 13, 2020 COVID-19 Information

These are the changes Parkway Driving School has made to follow the new guidelines for driving schools (RMV Link)

These protocols will stay in place until further notice.

In-Car Requirements

Only one student and one instructor are allowed in the car during lessons. Students and instructors must wear masks at all times in the car, and windows must be kept open. Vehicles will be cleaned after each student. Students will be offered hand sanitizer at the beginning of lessons. Students will sign virtually for all lessons (see below). If your child is not feeling well, please cancel their lesson.

Observation Hours

Observation hours have been waived and Governor Baker has issued an Executive Order that changes the required parent/guardian supervised driving hours from 40 to 46 hours. 

Please read this document for specific instructions.

Central Pick Up Locations

Per the new guidelines, we can only allow one student and the instructor in the car at a time. We can no longer allow students to pick up the next student, so going forward, we cannot accommodate home pickups because it is taking too much time between each lesson to drop off students, sanitize the car, drive to the next student, and sanitize the car again for the next student.

We understand that this is not as convenient as home pickups, but if we add time in the schedule between each lesson for travel and cleaning, we lose almost two appointments per day per instructor. The students are three months behind, and we don’t want to make the process longer by having fewer appointment times to choose from.

We will have central pickup locations for all driving lessons. When you schedule a lesson, you will see only one pick up location option. Each appointment has only one pick location option, but some zip codes fall into more than one pick-up zone.

Touchless Signatures

The RMV requires that students sign in for every behind-the-wheel driving lesson. As we cannot share pens and paper, we have created virtual signatures for all driving lessons. Students will log in to their student portal after each driving lesson and find the box below. Choose “Sign” which opens up a box for a virtual signature.

Weekend/Off-Hour Road Tests

We will be resuming weekend and off-hours road tests in early July. We have opened our schedule back up with available dates. You can take your test two weeks after you complete all your driving hours, but sign up earlier because these spots will fill up quickly as the RMV is currently only testing people with canceled appointments at this time. 

Thank you for your patience as we scramble to keep up with the ever-changing requirements in this extraordinary time. Our new office hours are Mon – Thurs from 10AM – 4PM. We can only allow one person/family at a time in the office, so please call or email with any questions.
