All about us...

When you are registering with us, you are registering with a private High School, governed by the California Board of Education and NOT a driving school. So, when you take the online driver education course with us, you will receive a Certificate of Completion of Classroom Driver Education from us. This certificate, form DL387, is honored by the California Department of Motor Vehicles.

In order for you to take the written test at the DMV, you will need this certificate (DL387) or OL237, which is issued by a driving school.

The course name is Driver’s Ed - on the Net® . This course, which is approved by the California DMV is owned and maintained by Metro Educational Systems, LLC.
