    Information With Phase 5 of the Restore Illinois Plan effective June 11th, classroom instruction will be "in-person" once again in select locations on June 14th. In-Person classes are scheduled at all locations beginning in July. Vaccinated students and instructors have the option to wear a mask during their class sessions and driving lessons. All non-vaccinated students and staff must continue to wear a mask as they have done during the last year.
