Out of all the other online courses, this one seemed like the most transparent and honest. The whole process was very simple from start to finish. I downloaded my certificate from my account and customer service confirmed that they notified the DMV of my completion. The service was outstanding.

I thought it would be boring but the course was on point. They added funny stories and interesting facts to keep you engaged throughout the course. I would recommend this course to anyone who needs the 5 points.

About Virginia Driver Improvement Course

  • Our driver improvement course is approved by the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).

This driver improvement course is approved by the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles to give you a 5-point credit on your license upon completion. Once you have finished we will notify the DMV that you have completed the course and they will update your records.

Drivers under 20 years old may NOT register for this course - you must take an in-classroom course to satisfy DMV requirements.

You have unlimited final exam retakes as part of the initial course price. However, keep in mind that you must wait 24 hours between each exam retake.

The course is fun and engaging while fulfilling the requirements of the DMV.
