Are you sure this class will be accepted by my state?

Yes, our certificate is accepted by every circuit court in Virginia for both resident and non-resident permits (multi-state). It must be accepted as a matter of law.

In Iowa and Oregon it is accepted according to the state law. We gauarantee it will be accepted in every county in Virginia, Iowa, and Oregon or your money back!

I am having issues with the video loading or it keeps stopping, what should I do?

There are numerous factors that could cause the video to load or play improperly. Please refer to our Online Help area for more information.

I can't find the test! Where is the test?

This is a common question. Our software application requires you to watch the entire video before the system will show the test link. If you paused or fast forwarded at all or even stopped the video short you will not be able to view the test until you complete the entire video. Again, even if one or two seconds of the video have been missed the test will not show until it has been played completly. When in dbout, simply play it again. Once the entire video has been played you will see a link that says "take the test" on the right side of the screen under your dashboard.
