  • Behind the Wheel Instruction

    Students drive in residential, rural, and city/freeway settings. The DMV-approved road test will be administered on day seven. To be eligible to take behind-the-wheel (BTW) instruction, students must have attended a Partners for  Safe Teen Driving presentation and have completed half of the classroom phase with an “A” or “B” grade average. BTW consists of seven days of instruction (50 minutes driving and 50 minutes observing).  Contact your home high school for more information. 

    We strongly suggest that students and parents are familiar with the 45-hour parent/teen driving guide before coming to the first Behind the Wheel class. Download the 45-Hour Parent/Teen Driving Guide 

    The student's Virginia learner’s permit number is required at the time of registration. 

  • Remote Site Learner’s Permit Testing

    Due to COVID-19, Learner's Permit (LP) Testing is NOT currently available in LCPS high schools.

    When students pass the LP test at their school, the proctor will give them a document to take to the clerk at the DMV. Parents also receive an email notification of the results. This service allows students to test in a familiar environment and is a real time-saver for parents! All students who register for behind-the-wheel instruction must be enrolled in Loudoun County Public Schools. Transportation to and from the high school is the responsibility of the parent or guardian.

    This following link below lists all the established LP testing sites so far in LCPS. Please see your school's HPE website or your Driver Education teacher for forms and registration information.  Remote Testing in Schools.
