This website contains the information and documents necessary to register for this course. As representatives of Montana's Motor Vehicle Division we are required to follow their licensing requirements so Montana Motor Vehicle Division eye exam form linked below, official birth certificates and social security cards are all required documents as well as our registration form and signed contract. We prefer that all these documents are submitted electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org. We have provided details below along with some directions for scanning and emailing these documents. Getting all documents submitted in one email will really help to keep things organized. Hard copies may also be submitted to Mr. Houghton at least one week before start of class.
