Question: Do I receive my Certificate of Completion on the same day that I satisfactorily complete the class?

Answer: Yes! You will leave class with the Certificate of Completion.

Question: What happens if I register and pay for a class but can't attend?

Answer: You can transfer your payment in full to any other open class. If you would prefer a refund, you can receive a $56 refund by sending us an email at dominiondriver@gmail.com. We keep a $4 processing fee.

Question: How many points do I receive for taking your class?

Answer: If you are taking the class voluntarily or because of a DMV order, you can receive up to five safe driving points for taking our class. This assumes that you haven’t taken a clinic in the past two years and received points. In the case of a DMV order, it additionally assumes that you were at least 18 years old when you received the ticket.

Please note that you can never have more than five safe driving points on your record.

If you are taking the class because of a court referral or order, safe driving points are not permitted. 

 

Question: How can I earn more points?

Answer: You earn one safe driving point for every calendar year (January 1st through December 31st) in which you are not convicted of a violation or have a suspension. Keep in mind that the demerit points you receive for a traffic charge are valid for two years. 

Question: Do you report my satisfactory completion of the clinic to DMV?

Answer: Yes! We are required to report your completion within 24 hours, and we usually report the night of the same day that you complete the class.

Question: Do you report my satisfactory completion of the clinic to the court that ordered the class?

Answer: No, reporting to the court is the student’s responsibility. You will have received instructions from the court that you can refer to.

Question: What happens if I fail the test?

Answer: You can retest on another class day or retake the class again for no additional charge.

Question: How do I know how many points are on my Virginia DMV record?

Answer:  Go to the DMV website, dmv.virginia.gov, and click on “Create Account” which is next to the orange “Log In” tab at the top of the page. Their system will prompt you through the steps to view your points and your driving record. You can also order an official transcript of your record.

Our clinic is fully licensed by the  Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles and is accepted by Virginia courts.
