Commercial driver's license instruction; comprehensive community colleges. Allows comprehensive community colleges in the Virginia Community College System to administer the in-vehicle component of driver instruction to students enrolled in a commercial driver training course offered by such community college who have failed the behind-the-wheel examination or genera knowledge examination for a commercial driver's license three times. The bill requires that after such additional training, the Department of Motor Vehicles only shall administer the applicable exam. The bill requires that comprehensive community colleges offering such coursework meet certain standards as established by the Department and that the Department notify such comprehensive community colleges and similarly affected schools of course curriculum requirements and notify such colleges and schools if new topics are added to the mandatory curriculum. Such comprehensive community colleges and affected schools shall have 45 days to comply and update their course curriculum with the relevant changes. Read the Bill »
