• Behind the Wheel is the final stage of Driver's Education for students attempting to earn their Virginia Driver's License.  To be eligible for BTW, students must successfully complete Classroom Driver's Ed, have their Virginia Learner's Permit, and complete, or be close to completing 45 hours of supervised driving with a parent or other licensed adult.  15 of those hours should be at night.  Please utilize the following links for more information and to register for Behind the Wheel at Dominion HS

    You also have the choice to use a private driving school outside LCPS for your Behind the Wheel requirement.  Please know that not all driving schools are created equal. Many will ignore the rules and the approved curriculum for this course, compromising the safety of your children and everyone on the road.  If you do choose to take advantage of the conveniences of a private driving school, please do your research to ensure they are following the standards of learning as set forth by the VDOE and DMV. 

     For your convenience, here are two private schools that follow the same instructional practices followed by Dominion.  You may also employ these schools to provide private, one on one lessons to help students gain the skills and confidence to safely drive a vehicle.

    DON'T FORGET -  You will need your DEC-8 card for BTW.  You can request that here DEC-8
