  • Driver Education Behind-the-Wheel (BTW)

    (Prerequisite: Must have completed 30 hours of classroom instruction, be 15 years old and in possession of your learner's permit.) The second phase of driver education consists of 6 hours hands-on instruction. Licensed staff will guide students through proper driving techniques and skills including right and left turns, 90-degree backing, parallel parking, traffic lights and stop signs, lane changes, one-way, right of way, emergency stop, and much more. Minors must be enrolled in a behind-the-wheel program before they can take the knowledge test to obtain their permit. As long as a student is enrolled in a classroom session, they can also enroll for BTW. Doing so allows the student who is at least 15 to take their knowledge test as soon as they complete classroom. DO NOT wait to take the test! Students must pass their knowledge test and be in possession of their learner's permit prior to their first scheduled driving lesson. When registering for summer BTW, please pay special attention to the dates. For the 3 or 6-day long sessions, you are selecting your exact driving dates and times so please check your schedule carefully. Your child must be able to attend all dates listed. Missing a session will result in an additional 2-hours of make up instruction and an $82 fee. Changes to enrollment are very difficult as this program fills quickly leaving little to no room for rescheduling. If we are able to make a change, it will involve a $20 fee. There are no refunds or cancellations allowed due to the restrictions imposed by Minnesota Law. Once registered for BTW and in possession of your blue card, you must remain in an active BTW session. If you have been unable to pass the knowledge test, you must contact Community Education to reschedule resulting in a $20 change fee. Student must have their permit with them for each driving session. If you forget your permit you cannot drive and that counts as a no show resulting in an $82 fee. Download and bring the Parental Approval Form to your first lesson.

  • Point of Impact (Parents and their new teen drivers)

    Newly licensed teen drivers are not necessarily safe drivers. Parents are the first and best source for teaching their children. Safe driving skills are developed over time and a parent’s role continues even after they receive their license. Traffic crashes are the leading killer of Minnesota teens. Inexperience, distractions, risk taking and poor seat belt compliance are the primary factors. Learn the importance of playing a role in developing the safe driving skills of your youth. View a video that presents stories of Minnesota youth and families impacted by crashes. Participation reduces required practice driving time from 50 to 40 hours. The hours are recorded on the newly required driving log that must be submitted prior to taking the driver’s test (effective Jan. 2015).
