Tuition Payments Due
Driving tuition payment for all students who took the classroom in October 2018 or earlier, and who wish to continue on with road lessons, is due by the end of this year.
Christmas Tree Shops Location Closes
Due to the ending of our lease, our Shrewsbury location is now closed. Road lessons will continue in Shrewsbury and elsewhere as always, and our main location in Holden is completely unaffected. For more information click HERE .
New RMV Procedures
The RMV switchover to a new IT system and the Real ID have caused a lot of confusion. The two things that have affected our customers the most so far are:
- If you got your permit before 3/26/18 and are taking your road test after 3/26/18, you may not be able to pre-pay the RMV licensing fees. You will still be able to take the road test, but you will need to go to the RMV and supply them with additional documentation of Massachusetts residence (this FORM may help) along with other required documents (birth certificate, Social Security Card, School ID, Passport if you have one) and pay the fees.
- There have been major changes to the way we operate and a massive increase in what we report to the RMV. Although we have developed several tactics for entering the information as efficiently as possible, we are still doing an extra hour of data entry PER STUDENT that we didn't need to do before 3/26/18.
Office Hours Exceptions
For office hours on holidays, and on rare occasions when the Gilmores take a day or two off, see our Holidays and Gilmore vacations page.
April Vacation Accelerated Class
It seems as though almost every other year, school systems threaten to cancel or shorten April vacation due to excessive snow days. Since we're in the middle of clearing 8" of heavy wet snow in MID-NOVEMBER (!), we consider it prudent to delay enrollment for the April vacation class until we have a clearer picture of what kind of a winter we're going to have.
