*New as of July 1, 2022: The Parent/Student 90-minute online course will be required for student's living outside of *Planning District 8 and may be completed in-person or online. The participation of the student's parent or guardian in the Parent/Student Course is encouraged, but not required.
Driver's EDge will offer this course in the near future (we are waiting for VDOE and the DMV to approve this new course for us to use). Until then, the DMV has collaborated with the Virginia Association of Driver Education and Traffic Safety (VADETS) to allow Driver's EDge & other online driver training schools that provide the classroom component of driver education online to use the VADETS Parent/Student Course. The link to the VADETS course is www.90minparentteen.org
Parent/Guardian, you will be charged a $14.00 fee for this course (you can not pay Driver's EDge, you have to pay VADETS). Until we can offer this course through our online curriculum provider, you are required to complete this course in addition to the Driver's EDge Online Driver's Ed Course ($125 per above). You will have to show proof of completing the Parent/Student online course, on or before taking the online driver's ed final exam & to complete behind the wheel. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to reach out. You can also reach out to the DMV directly regarding any issues or concerns with the VADETS course 1-877-885-5790 or email VADETS directly firstname.lastname@example.org
