Driver training school Portal replacement

We've begun our second phase of DRIVES, replacing our driver licensing system. It's planned for release September 2018.

What's in it for you?

  • Ability to enter e-waivers for all students enrolled in a course at once
  • Applicants who have a clear permit will display even if another document exists on the record
  • Applicant records will show an indicator if they must test with an ignition interlock device
  • Applicant records will show an alert if they must test at a Driver Licensing Service Office
  • Driver Training School locations and instructors will be listed alphabetically
  • The system will no longer default to a.m. You'll have the choice to select a.m. or p.m.

Before the release date (September 2018), training and testing will be offered to driver training schools and staff.

How will the new Portal impact the work you do?

  • The new system affects services in many ways. It'll improve efficiency, effectiveness, and streamline processes.
    • Some of your data entry will change
    • The new portal will look and feel similar to the current portal
    • Your reporting requirements won't change
  • We'll be replacing PIC number with DLN (Driver License number)
  • We'll start assigning the DLN using random generated numbers that won't allow duplicate numbers or contain any personal information
