Once your enrollment is received, you will be sent a booklet which you will need to read and bring back to class with you. If you pass the course, you will be issued a certification card. When you take this card to the DMV, that will waive you needing to take the riding portion of the test, but you will still be required to take the written test (if you have not done so already).
