Eight-Hour Online Driver Manual Course


Who needs this course? 

-Driver's License applicants who fail the knowledge exam three times, must successfully complete the knowledge component of a driver education course before they can take the examination a fourth time. 

Classes taken at a driver improvement clinic do not meet this requirement. 

Failing the Knowledge Test: 

Student's under the age of 18 that fail the general knowledge test three times:

-If you complete the required classroom portion of driver's education (online or in classroom consisting of 36 fifty-minute sessions) after you fail three times, you may present  the certificate of completion such as a DEC-1 (from public  or private school) or DTS 36 (from DMV-licensed driver training school like Driver's EDge) to satisfy the three-times failure. 

-If you complete the classroom component of driver education before failing the knowledge test three times you may take the 8-hour driver's manual course online or in person to satisfy the three times failure. You must provide your certificate of completion such as a DEC-1 or DTS 36 (from a DMV-licensed driver training school) to the email address ( of the school that will be providing the Driver's Manual Course before you enroll in the Driver's Manual Course. 


Student's age 18 years or older may complete an 8-hour Driver's Manual Course, either in a classroom or online. This 8-hour course is based on the Virginia Driver's Manual and is designed to better prepare individuals for the knowledge test. The online course must be completed through a DMV-licensed online driver training school (Driver's EDge). 

When you have successfully completed either the classroom or online version of the 8-hour Driver's Manual Course and have provided the DMV with your certificate or completion, you can retake the general knowledge exam.
