Welcome to the 90-Minute Parent/Teen Driver Education Component

If you live in Planning District 8 (counties of Arlington, Fairfax, Loudoun, or Prince William OR the cities of Alexandria, Fairfax, Falls Church, Manassas or Manassas Park) and you took classroom driver education in-person (not online), you are NOT eligible to take this online 90 Minute Parent Teen Program.

Documented Home-School students who are enrolled in a Virginia state approved online driver education course are eligible to complete this program online. Verification of enrollment/completion of an approved classroom driver education program is required before a certificate can be issued. 

You must complete the program within 48 hours of registration.

When you and your parents complete the program, you MUST download the Affirmation of Attendance and Agreement (three pages), print and complete each with signatures, scan and email to vadetsonline@gmail.com. No certificate will be issued until this certification is received! The Affirmation of Attendance and Agreement are found on your course menu after you complete Module 8.

State law requires that parent and students spend 90 minutes on this program. If you do not meet this time requirement, no certificate will be issued. At this point, you will have the option to register, pay and begin again.

Who is eligible to take this 90-minute parent/teen course online?

The Code of Virginia (§ 22.1-205) requires students and their parents living in Planning District 8 which includes the counties of Arlington, Fairfax, Loudoun and Prince William, and the cities of Alexandria, Fairfax, Falls Church, Manassas and Manassas Park, to participate in a 90-minute parent/teen presentation.  This presentation has been added to District 8 classroom driver education courses.

If the student completes an approved classroom driver education course online, this student is eligible to complete the additional 90-minute driver education parent/teen component online using this course.  Online students may also complete this requirement at a commercial driver training school, a public school, or a private school.

At the completion of this online course, the parent/guardian and the student will be required to sign an affirmation of attendance and parent teen agreement to acknowledge completion of the required 90-minute component. The certificate for affirmation of attendance must be submitted along with the proof of classroom completion in order for the student to be eligible to begin the in-vehicle portion of the driver education program.

If I successfully complete public school or private school classroom driver education course can I take this 90-minute course online?

As the 90-minute parent/teen component has been added to the classroom driver education course, the accountability for the implementation, delivery, and documentation of successful completion of this legislative requirement rests with your classroom driver education teacher.  Consequently, it is the responsibility of the classroom teacher to hold at least two high-quality, meaningful parent/teen presentations at a time convenient for parents. Teachers are also encouraged to make provisions for additional sessions when warranted.

The school division driver education supervisor may contact us in writing to request special permission for a public or private school student to enroll in this program. This request must be received prior to student registration. No refund will be issued to any student who enrolls in the program and is not eligible to complete it.
