  • Remote Classroom with 6-Hr Behind-the-Wheel Package

    Register for classroom and behind-the-wheel instruction together and save $145!  Regularly priced at $635.

    30 Hours of Remote Classroom Instruction

    • Remote classroom via Zoom
    • Complete classroom education in as little as 10 days
    • Flexible scheduling for your busy teen
    • Includes a printed copy of the Minnesota Driver's Manual

    You may attend classroom education at 14 years of age but cannot take the written knowledge test to obtain your learner's permit until you are 15 years old. We strongly encourage you to attend classroom education as close to your 15th birthday as possible. Students who take the class too early tend to retain less and struggle to pass the written test.

    You have one year from the last day of classroom instruction to complete your behind-the-wheel lessons. The younger you are when attending class, the less time you have to complete your driving lessons. If you are unable to complete your lessons before your contract expires, you will be required to pay an additional fee to extend your contract.

    6 Hours of Behind-the-Wheel Instruction

    • Three 2-hour Lessons
    • One-on-One Instruction
    • Home Pick-up / Drop-off
    • Defensive Driving Structured Lessons

    You must have your permit and complete 10 hours of practice driving prior to scheduling your first behind-the-wheel session. Your behind-the-wheel instruction may be completed concurrently with your 50 hours of supervised driving. The hours driven with an instructor do not count as part of your 50 hours of supervised driving requirement.

    Parent Class

    The parent class is optional and included free of charge with your registration. The class is designed to help you get the most out of your child's driver's education. Your attendance reduces the requirement to log 50 hours of supervised driving to 40 hours. Select which class you wish to attend when registering your student.

    Payment and Registration

    Registration for remote learning classes will close 1 week prior to the first day of class. You may pay in full or make a down payment of at least $236.25 (cash discounted price), which includes a one time registration fee of $6.25. Your payment must be received prior to the first day of class. The balance must be paid in full prior to your first behind-the-wheel session. Payment plans are available. We accept cash, check, or credit card.

    WARNING → Please, do not use a school email address when registering. Many schools implement security protocols that block delivery of external email messages.

  • Remote Classroom Only

    30 Hours of Remote Classroom Instruction

    • Remote classroom via Zoom
    • Complete your classroom education in as little as 10 days
    • Flexible scheduling for your busy teen
    • Includes a printed copy of the Minnesota Driver's Manual

    You may attend classroom education at 14 years of age but cannot take the written knowledge test to obtain your learner's permit until you are 15 years old. We strongly encourage you to attend classroom education as close to your 15th birthday as possible. Students who take the class too early tend to retain less and struggle to pass the written test. 

    You will receive a 30-hour Letter of Completion in place of the blue card. The DPS only allows a driver education program to issue a blue card when the student has completed the classroom education and is registered for six hours of behind-the-wheel education. If you elect to complete the behind-the-wheel portion of driver education with another program, you will need to present the 30-hour Letter of Completion when registering with them. They will then issue a blue card for you. You must present the blue card to the examiner when taking your written permit test. You will not be allowed to take the permit test without a blue card.

    Parent Class

    The parent class is optional and included free of charge with your registration. The class is designed to help you get the most out of your child's driver's education. Your attendance reduces the requirement to log 50 hours of supervised driving to 40 hours. Select which class you wish to attend when registering your student.

    Payment and Registration

    Registration for remote classes will close one week prior to the first day of class. Students are charged a one-time administrative fee of $6.25 at the time of registration. Your full payment must be received prior to the first day of class. We accept cash, check, or credit card.  Payments made by credit/debit card do not receive the cash discounted price. Payment plans are available.
