Long Lines At RMV - April Vacation Week
Due to a large number of customers who intend to do business with the RMV during April school vacation, plus the fact that they have only a 4-day week due to Patriot's Day, the RMV is anticipating very long wait times and crowded waiting areas. Do yourself a favor and go another time!
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:
Office Hours Exceptions
- 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 after you pass and supply them with additional documentation of Massachusetts residence (this FORM may help) and pay the fees.
- There have been massive changes to the way we operate and a massive increase in what we report to the RMV. You are now expected to take the parent class concurrently with the student classroom. In the past, we have allowed students who do not have a parent class to take 1 or 2 road lessons per week. This unfortunately cannot continue.
For office hours on holidays, and on rare occasions when the Gilmores take a day or two off, see our Holidays and Gilmore vacations page.
Road Test 100% Passing Rate!
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! 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? Sign up today!
Pay RMV Fees Online!
Are you going to be taking your road test soon? You can pay the RMV licensing fees online, instead of schlepping down to their branch office or waiting an hour or more on hold. Please go to RMV WEBSITE.
