Driver Education Waiver Test

You are welcome to waiver test as long as you have successfully passed the 30 hours of class instruction (online or in person) and 6 hours of behind the wheel instruction with The Link Driver Education Program.


The waiver test is taken with one of our instructors and in one of our driver ed vehicles. The test takes about 30 minutes. Students were made aware of the waiver test expectations and practiced what the waiver test route could be like during driving instruction times with our instructor.

The waiver test will be in one of our driver ed cars with one of our instructors meeting at

The Link Business Office located at 2508 Western Ave in Connersville.

The waiver test takes approximately 30 minutes. Students will need to bring the following with them to their waiver test:

               - learner's permit

               - copy of their online certificate of completion

               - behind the wheel certificate of completion that their driver ed instructor gave them the last day of driving.

We try to set aside dates and times for testing in Connersville at our business office. However, if these dates and times don't work for you, please call us at (765) 377-7026 or email our director, Pam Shawl at We can also sometimes schedule testing meeting in Richmond or Connersville after school, weekends or in the evenings.
