There may be an opportunity for students to take their permit test on the last day of class.  In the event that is possible we will need your student's social security number. You will be asked to provide it upon registration. If testing is unable to be provided the last day of class or your student is not yet 15 years old, students and parents will need to make arrangements to take the written permit test on their own.

Once your student driver has a valid permit, our instructors recommend that they first gain driving experience with a parent or guardian before scheduling their training sessions. Students will be provided driving instructions and material that is tested during the student's road exam so that they know what to expect and can prepare. Scheduling the sessions 3-4 months prior to their birthdate/test date is beneficial as it will allow time to work on needed skills in between sessions. Once on the waitlist, an instructor will contact you to schedule three 2-hour practice sessions.

To get started, contact us at 507-379-5318 and provide us with the following information to be added to our wait list:

  • First and last name
