Are classes at The Next Street online?

Our classes are taught virtually on Zoom by a live instructor.

You can take classes from the comfort of your home at a schedule that works for you. All of our instructors are live, we never use recorded presentations. 

DMV Remote Requirements:

  1. Students must participate in the entire 2-hour session on Zoom to receive credit. We will submit the Zoom's participation log as our attendance. 
  2. Students will need to sign that they attended the entire session. Students under 18 must have a parent or guardian sign. 
  3. Students will need to take and pass a 10-question quiz following each online session to prove that you actually learned the materials.
  4. One to two days after class, you will receive an e-mail inviting you to sign for the class and take the quiz. The quiz and signature links so not expire, you can complete them at your convenience.

Our Digital Classroom Requirements:

  • Legal Name as Display Name
    • Please make sure that your full legal name, as spelled on your Learner's Permit, appears on your Zoom account. If you have a nickname you prefer to be called, you can add it after a dash after your legal name. Ex: James Smith - Jim
    • Check out this video on How to Change Your Display Name on Zoom.  
  • Cameras On
    • During class, your camera must be on and pointed toward you on a stable/steady surface. If you have technical limitations and are unable to comply with this requirement, please notify your instructor via private chat message on Zoom.
  • Please Come Ready to Learn & Take Notes
    • You should be seated upright, in a quiet location, where you can remain focused and present for the duration of class. We recommend, and research shows, that using a physical notebook and taking notes by hand supports learning and recall. 
  • Show Up & Be on Time
    • You must be fully present for the entire duration of class in order to get credit. Scheduled breaks will be given. Attendance will be taken at the start of class, after break, and at the end of class. 
  • Avoid Digital Multitasking
    • We understand the pull to do other things while in a Zoom meeting, like scrolling on your phone, playing games, or checking your DMs. We challenge you to focus on the class materials in the same way you will have to focus (without distractions) while driving.
