During the 30-hour classroom phase of Driver Education, a DMV representative will visit the classroom to conduct a vision and medical screening of all the students. Students who successfully complete this screening are issued a Restricted Instruction Permit which allows the student to drive with our instructor for the purposes of Driver Education training.
If the student has any existing medical conditions as flagged by the DMV, the DMV representative will not sign off on the RIP form. They will instead submit the student’s information for a medical review. The DMV office will issue a medical packet to the student to be completed by his/her physician. Once the DMV receives the physician’s completed forms, the DMV will determine if the student is cleared to complete the behind the wheel training. If the student is cleared, the DMV will mail a “clearance letter” to the student. It is the student’s responsibility to make sure our office receives a copy of this letter. Our office must have the clearance letter and signed RIP form in order for the student to complete the behind the wheel phase.
