A Message from PSC regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Dear Valued Customer,

With the DMV re-opening some of their field office, PSC will resume offering behind the wheel training effective June 15, 2020. Priority will be given to those students that were cancelled out and those with testing dates coming up soon. Thank you for your patience as we continue to keep you safe!

Please note the new COVID-19 protocols will be in place and we need everyone to do their part! Additional information will be given upon scheduling.
