Frequently Asked Questions

How to Get a Parent Class Certificate

How do I get a parent class certificate?
Send $10 (cash or money order only) with a note containing the name of the parent who took the class, the name of the student for whom the class was taken, the approximate date that the class was taken, your residence address and your email address to: Gilmore's Driving School, c/o Douglas Gilmore, PO Box 208 Jefferson MA 01522. We will email you a PDF of the certificate. NO personal checks! Requests accompanied by a personal check will be disregarded. Please allow up to 2 weeks for mail to reach us, and processing.

When will I receive my driver's ed certificate?
Never, there is no piece of paper 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, but that ended well over a decade ago. Please join the 21st century, and stop calling the processing of your driver's ed completion a "certificate", since it is merely an entry on the RMV system now.

Why did the Gilmores exit the driving school business?
We simply wanted to do something else, and get out "while the getting was good". It was a very well-planned exit crafted over a 3-year period, and all students who desired a license got done. The timing with the COVID-19 crisis was just incredibly good luck.

How do I retrieve the parent log on Schedule2Drive?
It is not needed to process your completion with the RMV, which was already done on March 16, 2020 or earlier. You no longer need to be concerned with "hours", be concerned instead with staying healthy, and take a subjective view regarding the new driver's skills and habits.

Can I rent or borrow one of your cars to take the road test at the RMV?
Sorry, but we do not rent or loan out cars. All of the driving school cars have been sold. We hear that you can rent a suitable car from AVIS Car Rental at 220 Worcester Rd, Framingham, MA (508) 872-8707. Please note that any borrowed/rental vehicle used for a road test must have express written permission from the owner or rental company for such a purpose.

How long does it take for my new license to arrive?
If you paid the RMV licensing fees directly to the RMV, you should receive your license in the mail within 15 days after passing the road test. If you don't receive it within 2-3 weeks, contact the RMV, not us.
