Frequently Asked Questions
How do I get my permit?
The first step to getting your permit is to pre-apply for it by creating an account with the Department of Licensing using License Express. There is a link on our RESOURCES page that will get you started. When you complete this process you will get a confirmation number...this is your state ID Number so keep it handy.
Email your confirmation number to us at email@example.com. We will file a waiver with the DOL for you. After we file the waiver we will send you an email letting you know the waiver is on file. Do not go to the DOL until you get this email from us!
If you already have a State ID Card from Washington you do not need to pre-apply, just email us your State ID Number and we will file the waiver for you. After we file the waiver we will send you an email letting you know the waiver is on file. Do not go to the DOL until you get this email from us!
If you start the pre-application process and you get a message that a number has already been issued some has already pre-applied. If you do not know what the conformation/ID number is you will need to call or go to the DOL office and get the number.
And remember... Do not go to the DOL until you get this email from us!
What is the refund policy for Driver Education Classes?

Where do I take my DOL Tests to get my license
If you are one of our students you will take the DOL examinations with us. Your course fees include 2 attempts at both the Written and Skills tests.
When can I take my DOL Tests?
Once you have completed all your driver education class requirements you can take the written test. The DOL testing page has a link to a calendar of testing dates and times. You do not need to make a reservation for the written test. We will occasionally cancel a test slot; check the calendar on the day you want to test to be sure we are testing.
Once you pass the written test you can sign up for a DOL Skills (Drive) Test; these do require you make an appointment with us for testing
Can I split my attendance between two different sessions of Driver Education?
No. State regulations require that students be enrolled in only one class. They are allowed to miss a maximum of 3 sessions of their class.
When is parent night?
The State Department of Licensing requires that parents attend an information session with the driver education school. Parent Night at Interface Driving Academy is held from 6-7 PM the evening of the day before the class starts.
