Bioptic Driving in Virginia

I'm hoping someone can help me. I've been a restricted daylight driver in Virginia for 10 years. Several months ago I heard about the Bioptic. I did some research and found out I could get my driving restriction lifted if my vision is 20/40 or better using the Bioptic. Shortly thereafter I visited a low vision doctor to see what he could do. Without a problem we got my vision down to 20/30 with the Occutech 3.0x Mini. I ordered my Bioptic and I picked it up the other day. I read on the Virginia DMV website the trainings and tests a person with a Bioptic must go through to get their license for the first time. I, on-the-other-hand, already have my license and am interested in using the Bioptic only to get my daylight restriction lifted. Are the tests and trainings the same for me who's been driving for 10 years and has a clean driving record? If not, what tests and trainings do I need to go through?

Thanks, Marcie Turnau
