Why did I get a message that my personal information could not be validated, and what is a Student Affidavit?

We are required by the state of Texas to use Third Party Validation (TPV) sources to validate the identity of the students who register for the course. Using the Driver’s License # and License Plate # you enter during registration, we obtain information from those TPV sources, and use it to ask you random Personal Validation Questions throughout the course. Per state requirements, you must answer at least 70% of the validation questions correctly to receive credit for the course.

If your identity cannot be validated by our TPV sources, then we will be unable to present the necessary validation questions. You can still complete the course, but will also be required to download and print a student affidavit, which must be completed and notarized, and returned to us before we can process your certificate.

You are given the opportunity to download the affidavit, if necessary, as soon as you register at the beginning of the course. If you do not download the affidavit at that time, you are given another opportunity to download it once you complete the course. The notarized affidavit can be returned to us via email or regular mail.
