The Basic eCourse alone is NOT accepted as a license waiver by any state's DMV, or as a motorcycle license or learner's permit. With Spanish language option.

If you do not need the license waiver component (no classroom activities and no knowledge or skill test), there is a "Skills Practice" offering.
