How long will it take you to process my completion once I finish the course?

What do I do once I receive my certificate in the mail?
You need to take the certificate to your local DMV so you can take the test to receive your learner’s permit.
What other information do I need to take to the DMV other than my drivers ed completion certificate?

What do I do if I lose my California drivers education certificate?
In the event that a certificate is lost, there will be a $25.00 processing fee to have another certificate of completion sent. A signed letter from a parent/guardian is required to obtain a second certificate when the first one is lost.
Can you fax me the drivers education completion certificate?
The DMV will only accept original certificates from our office. If you are in a hurry to get your certificate you can always upgrade to expedited delivery. If you are in the neighborhood, you can always call and pick up the certificate instead of having one mailed to you.
What do I do once I have passed your online final exam?
Once you have passed the course final exam, we will send you a driver's ed certificate of completion in the mail. This is the same completion certificate you will take with you to the DMV when you take the written test needed to earn a California learner permit.
