Top Driver COVID-19 Vehicle Sanitization Update

Top Driver is going the extra mile to ensure that we are providing a safe learning space for our students and instructors.

September 8, 2020 Update

Attention Top Driver Families,

We are pleased to offer our new WEBCAST Online Classroom option (self-paced with no structured schedule) to provide alternative classroom training for our students! Students may enroll at any time however they must be 15 years old in order to complete the last class module and the final exam. The Secretary of State has announced that our WEBCAST On Demand classroom option will be available until the earlier of the State of Illinois reaching Phase 5 of the Restore Illinois plan or December 31, 2020. We encourage students to take advantage of this online classroom option while our traditional classroom programs may be unavailable. Please contact Customer Service with any questions at 800-374-8373. Thank you for your patience.

Classroom UPDATES:

Top Driver will not conduct in-person classes from our Educational Centers until the COVID-19 mandate on Social Distancing has been lifted and we feel it is safe to do so. Please continue to check back here and on the classroom scheduling pages for updates. Again, we encourage everyone to enroll in the WEBCAST Online program so that they can complete their classroom training as soon as possible.

In-Vehicle Training UPDATES:

    • As a result of the highly unusual set of circumstances created by the COVID-19 pandemic Top Driver will be making modifications to our standard behind the wheel procedures.
    • The details of the In-Vehicle training updates have been emailed to all existing students and can be found on our student portal, Top Driver Signals:
    • Until social distancing is no longer mandated, all in-vehicle training will start and end at Top Driver Education Centers.
    • In addition to daily vehicle cleaning, Top Driver has also invested in a COVID sanitization service from TSCERT whose products are EPA-registered, approved by the FDA, USDA and used in accordance with CDC, OSHA and the World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines for disinfecting.
    • Mandatory use of face coverings/masks by all students and instructors will be required. Lessons will not be conducted if a student is not wearing proper face covering. This is mandated by the Illinois Secretary of State.

The Illinois Secretary of State has stated that student Completion Deadlines will be extended beyond the current 9 months so there is no need to worry about a student completing their program in a timely manner.

Thank you very much for your patience and flexibility as we work through this crisis along with the rest of the state and nation.

The Top Driver Management Team
