    • Students can access the RMV's website to inquire if a driver's education certificate has been issued and applied to a student record.  There is no fee associated with this transaction and the RMV asks that all driving schools and students use this on-line service in lieu of calling the telephone center.
    • There is a link to this transaction on the RMV home page (www.mass.gov/rmv).  You simply go to the On-Line Transactions section and click HERE to verify your Driver's Ed Certificate. 
    •  You will be required to provide your students license number, first and last name, and date of birth.  If a certificate has been issued you will be informed of the date that the certificate has been issued and the student will be advised to call the RMV’s Telephone Center to book a road test (800-858-3926) or their driving school if the school will be sponsoring the student for their road test.  If a certificate has not been issued, you will be notified that a Driver's Ed Certificate was not found on our system, and the student will be advised to contact his/her driving school.
