Drivers Exam Refresher Course 

3-x Fail

Have you failed the DMV knowledge exam three times? Are you prevented from taking the DMV test again until you complete a required refresher course?

Don't spend your time and money on a 36-hour re-examination course when an 8-hour Driver's Manual Course approved by DMV is available. Adults 19 and over and persons under 19 who have already completed driver education in high school who successfully complete this Course may take the DMV knowledge test again.


DTW Driving School Now Offers the 8-Hour Driver's Manual Course in Richmond

Drive-To-Work has an approved DMV Driver's Manual Course which is offered through driver training schools throughout the state.

DTW Driving School offers the Course on Saturdays or Sundays as scheduled (check this web site for times) at its permanent offices at 4625 W. Broad Street, Richmond, VA 23230.

What Is Different about the DTW Driving School Driver's Manual Course?

  • The instruction: we have qualified and experienced driver education public school teachers presenting the Course. They know how to teach the rules of the road and techniques for successful completion.
  • The time required: This course is eight-hours long vs. the traditional 36-hour Driver's education course offered to high school students.
