On November 20, 2016 we had 27 students come for a road test, and all 27 passed! We repeated this rare result again on January 22, 2017 and August 24, 2017. On January 8, 2018, we did it again with a perfect 30 out of 30, and on September 8, 2018 a perfect 27 out of 27! No driving school can guarantee that every student will pass, but due to the thorough training that we provide your chances are better at Gilmore's. Are you ready to take driver's ed with us?

Data Entry 100% Complete - New RMV Atlas System
After several hundred hours of data entry, Gilmore's Driving School has 100% of our students fully uploaded into the new RMV system. We can now get students into a road test with only 2 weeks' notice instead of 3 weeks.
New RMV Procedures
The RMV switchover to a new IT system and the Real ID have caused a lot of confusion. The two things that have affected our customers the most so far are:
- If you got your permit before 3/26/18 and are taking your road test after 3/26/18, you may not be able to pre-pay the RMV licensing fees. You will still be able to take the road test, but you will need to go to the RMV and supply them with additional documentation of Massachusetts residence (this FORM may help) along with other required documents (birth certificate, Social Security Card, School ID, Passport if you have one) and pay the fees.
- There have been major changes to the way we operate and a massive increase in what we report to the RMV. Although we have developed several tactics for entering the information as efficiently as possible, we are still doing an extra 1.5 total hours of data entry PER STUDENT that we didn't need to do before 3/26/18. You are now expected to take the parent class concurrently with the student classroom, and the RMV does not want any students to begin the driving curriculum until the student classroom is completely finished and the parent class is taken.
