Why are California driving schools/classes allowed to open, but dmv’s still can’t perform on-road tests?

    Driving schools/classes are private businesses that are independent from the  California DMV, and they have nothing to do with whether DMV testing sites are open or whether the DMV can or will perform road tests.

    If you pay them, driving schools/classes will teach you to drive at ANY time you want to enroll in their schools/classes. They don't care if you EVER take a road test after you complete their classes.

    Some DMV's have reopened with appointment only.  Just not road tests yet.

    The specific concern with road tests is that the DMV employee would have to be in your car. In classes and driving schools, you are in school's classroom or their car, which they have (hopefully) cleaned; they are not in yours.

    Because they're completely different from each other, that's why.

    Because driving schools are private businesses and the DMV is a government agency.

      Also have you seen how many persons wait in lines outside & inside a DMV, not counting those waiting their alphanumeric number?

    Because the schools are run by one entity and the DMV's run by a different entity.  Two different sets of management. that have their own rules.
