The DE-964 Certificate will be directly downloaded to your web browser. Most browsers have the ability to open, display, and print a PDF (Portable Document Format) file. If yours lacks that ability, it is recommended you install Adobe Acrobat Reader to enable your system and web browser to handle this properly.

Your Driver Education (DE-964) Certificate will be linked and downloadable in your student's work center upon login.
