Gilmores Driving School

Frequently Asked Questions


Why did Gilmore's Driving School close?
We accomplished what we intended by providing a decade of quality driving instruction for local students, and during our 10 years in operation we never took a single penny of taxpayer-funded loans or handouts. When we saw the coronavirus coming, we worked very long hours providing road lessons 7 days per week, and got all of our students finished by March 15, 2020 just before the Covid shutdown. With no students needing lessons, the shutdown was an obvious exit point. Due to a little luck and a lot of good planning no JOL students were left stranded, and we were free to continue helping our community by taking on front-line essential services jobs elsewhere.

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, 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.

How do I retrieve the parent log or other information from Schedule2Drive?
It is not required for anything with the RMV. You no longer need to be concerned with "hours"; please now take a subjective view regarding the new driver's skills and habits instead.

Where do you recommend that we go for driving school now?
You should go to a school that provides a quality education, combined with the financial stability needed to get through economic uncertainty. We therefore recommend
AAA Driving School.
