Drivers' Ed

The state of Minnesota requires anyone under the age of 18 wishing to obtain a MN Driver’s License to complete an approved course in driver education. Our Driver’s Education program is offered in partnership with A+ Driving School, and is approved by the State of Minnesota.  The course fee includes 30 hours of classroom instruction and six hours of behind the wheel instruction. The classroom includes lecture, class discussion, films, written work and practice tests. Behind-the-wheel training allows a student to practice driving on public streets and highways with an instructor in a dual-control (two brake) car.

The fee is $375. Payment can be made in full at the time of registration or in installments or $225 and $150.
