I heard that parents can fill the role of driving supervisor in Virginia, so taking a Norfolk driver training course like the one Virginia Driver Improvement Program offers is not necessary. Is that true?

What happens if I don't know how to drive a stick-shift vehicle? Will Virginia Driver Improvement Program allow me to do my driver training with an automatic-shift car?

However, if you prefer to complete your behind-the-wheel training using an automatic-shift vehicle, you should contact Virginia Driver Improvement Program and let them know before you sign up to take their driver training course. That way you will know for certain if they will accommodate you.
