Frequently Asked Questions

Why did Gilmore's Driving School close?
Our facility lease was expiring, and we had accomplished our goal of providing a decade of quality driving instruction without taking a single penny of taxpayer funds. When the coronavirus appeared we accelerated our exit plan, worked long hours 7 days per week, and got all of our students finished just before the shutdown.

Is there any chance that Gilmore's Driving School will reopen?
None. We are happily doing other things now.

When will I receive my driver's ed certificate?
On March 16th, 2020 or earlier, we processed the driver's ed completion with the RMV for all eligible Gilmore's Driving School students. But there is no paper document coming. Until 2008, the RMV (not the driving school) would mail your driver's ed "diploma" after we submitted your info with a payment on your behalf and our affidavit that you completed. That ended well over a decade ago. It is now simply an entry on the RMV system.

How do I get a parent class certificate?
Due to the coronavirus, a large number of policies and procedures have changed, and the parent class is now being administered online at most legitimate driving schools. We strongly recommend that you attend the parent class with your current driving school, so that your knowledge base is up to date and in synch with them. There is also the option of simply giving your new driving school a parent class attendance affidavit, if they are willing to cooperate.

How can I get an acceptable car to take the road test?
Due to Covid-19, the RMV is administering road tests in a state-owned vehicle that is cleaned by a professional cleaning crew in-between each exam, therefore you do not have to worry about this! You will however still need an acceptable sponsor, even though only the applicant and the RMV examiner will be in the road test car.
