During the 30 hour classroom phase of Driver Education, a representative from the School Bus and Traffic Safety Division of the DMV will come to our classrooms to conduct a vision and medical screening of all students. Students who successfully complete this screening are issued a Restricted Instruction Permit which allows a student to drive a Driver Education vehicle during their behind-the-wheel training with our certified Driver Education teachers.
Without a completed Restricted Instruction Permit that has been signed by a DMV representative, students cannot be scheduled for their behind-the-wheel classes. Any one of the following reasons will result in a student not having a Restricted Instruction Permit on file with Jordan Driving School that has been signed by a DMV representative during their classroom session:
- student absent on the day of the vision exam
- student forgot their corrective lenses on the day of the vision exam
- student paperwork on the Restricted Instruction Permit was not filled out correctly
- student did not turn in their Restricted Instruction Permit to the teacher with a parent signature before the day of the vision exam
- student was given the vision screening but failed it
Students who failed the vision screening in need of seeing a vision specialist will be issued an 804 form by the DMV representative that comes to our classes. See here for more information on DL77 forms and procedures for failed eye checks.
If any of the above reasons kept the student from obtaining the DMV specialist’s signature, then the student will need to contact the Lead Teacher at their high school to inquire about the next opportunity that a DMV officer will come back to their school to do this testing. Students must be present on the day that the Lead Teacher assigns them to come back for an eye screening, or they will not have a Restricted Instruction Permit on file with Jordan Driving School. Students will not be scheduled for their behind-the-wheel time until this exam and the DMV signature has been obtained.
STUDENTS WILL NOT BE PLACED ON A BEHIND-THE-WHEEL DRIVING LIST UNTIL THEY HAVE TAKEN AND PASSED THE VISION SCREENING GIVEN BY A SCHOOL BUS AND TRAFFIC SAFETY OFFICIAL AT THEIR HIGH SCHOOL.
