Do I need to complete this driver improvement traffic school course in one sitting?
How long will this course take?
The Virginia driver improvement program meets the state-mandated 8-hour length requirement. You may work through those 8 hours all in one day if you choose, or you may spread it out over a longer period of time. How long it takes is completely up to you!
What types of things will I study?
Each of your 8 course chapters focuses on topics that pertain to Virginia driving and traffic laws. These topics include:
- ● Highway safety
- ● Alcohol- and drug-impaired driving
- ● State traffic laws
- ● Driving emergencies
- ● Vehicle maintenance
Do I have to take a final exam?
Yes, you do. The final exam is 50 multiple-choice questions, and you will need to achieve a passing score of 80% or higher. You get unlimited retakes on the exam if you do not pass on your first try — so you’re guaranteed to pass the course!
How will I take the final exam?
As of September 1st, 2020, the state of Virginia no longer mandates that you complete your final exam at an approved testing center. Your final exam may be taken from the comfort of your own home.
What happens if I fail my final exam?
Is there any way I can fail the course?
You have unlimited retakes on your chapter quizzes and your final exam, so if you fail to achieve an 80% on your first try, you may simply retake them again until you pass.
Please note that you may only attempt your final exam once per day. If you need to retake the exam, you must do so at least 24 hours later.
