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.
Without a completed Restricted Instruction Permit that has been signed by a DMV representative, students cannot be scheduled for their behind-the-wheel classes. Any one of the following reasons will result in a student not having a Restricted Instruction Permit on file that has been signed by a DMV representative during their classroom session:
- student absent on the day of the vision exam
- student forgot their corrective lenses on the day of the vision exam
- student paperwork on the Restricted Instruction Permit was not filled out correctly
- student did not turn in their Restricted Instruction Permit to the teacher with a parent signature before the day of the vision exam
- student was given the vision screening but failed it
If any of the above reasons kept the student from obtaining the DMV specialist’s signature, then the student will need to visit the DMV with the RIP form to complete the vision screening.
STUDENTS WILL NOT BE PLACED ON A BEHIND-THE-WHEEL DRIVING LIST UNTIL THEY HAVE TAKEN AND PASSED THE VISION SCREENING GIVEN BY A DMV OFFICIAL.
