Steps for course completion
A+ Driving School will register each enrolled student through our exclusive portal to initiate the process.
Students initiate the process by selecting the “Submit” button found underneath the initial enrollment form, which will direct them to the online payment screen. Once payment is submitted, a representative from A+ Driving School will provide the student with their unique registration information.
Once registered, the student will receive a user name, password and link to the course website.
With these credentials, the student logs in and begins the approved online course.
Please keep in mind if under 18 the 90-minute parent teen component must be completed. It is provided in the email that is sent to you once you are registered and requires you to register for it separately from the course itself.
The student will receive a directive to return to A+ Driving School to take the final exam. The student is given written verification of completion of the theory portion of driver education. This document verifies to A+ Driving School that the student has completed this portion of the course and is ready to take the final exam. (We can look this up if you do not have it)
A licensed instructor from A+ Driving School will log in and open the testing site for each student who presents the written verification of completion document.
The student will then take the final examination online in the presence of the licensed instructor.
The course grades the test and reveals the results. If the student passes the course, the instructor will receive the certificate of completion for that student and can continue with the behind the wheel portion of the course or issue the certificate to the student when there is a request to transfer.
If the student fails the final examination, the student will be allowed to receive a printout of the questions so they can study and try again. Students must wait 24 hrs. before re-testing.
