I wish every course was this easy and convenient. You can log in and out as much as you like. They even had audio and video options too. They make it really simple and they notified the DMV when I completed the course.

About Virginia DMV Required Course Online

  • Our Virginia traffic school online is approved by the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).

Our Virginia DMV Required Course is approved by the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to fulfill the requirement to complete a driver improvement course.

Drivers under 20 years old may not register for the course - they must complete an in-classroom course with another provider to fulfill DMV requirements.

This is NOT the Driver's Manual Course - this course will NOT fulfill the driver training requirement for 3 exam failures. To avoid license suspension, complete this course within 90 days of receiving notice to complete a driver improvement course.

  • You must score at least 80% on the final exam to pass - don’t worry, you have unlimited attempts to pass at no extra charge.

What you'll get by the end of the course

  • Certificate of Completion

    Upon successful course completion, we will immediately provide a certificate of completion for you to download and email you a copy at no extra charge. This will evidence your completion of the course. You'll have to submit the certificate to the court to receive credit. Use it to:
