We ask that if you are not feeling well, or you are quarentining, that you do not attend class, even if you are not showing any symptoms. This puts the instructors and other students at great risk.
To join our class, pre-registration is NOT required. Students may start any day of class. Arrive 10-15 minutes early, fill out our registration form, make a down-payment of $100.00, bring a pencil or pen, and you are on your way to learning about safe driving and MN driving laws!
Evening classes are 6pm - 9pm (school year) Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday
Morning classes are Monday through Friday 9am - 12pm Monday and Tuesday 6pm-9pm (summer only)
Only 1 class can be taken per day
The State of MN requires students to complete 30 hours of classroom instruction. We have divided these hours into 10 classes, numbered 1 through 10. Students should attend each of the classes, but order of attendance is not important.
Please arrive on time. We cannot give partial credit or allow half-days. If students are more than 10 minutes late, credit for attendance will not be earned for that day.
Students may do 1 day on the wrong day, but NO MORE than 1 day will be allowed, this is a privilege and must be preapproved by the classroom instructor.
Students are training for an adult activity and are expected to act like adults in this class. Students are expected to listen to lectures and videos, and show respect for the instructor and other students. Inappropriate behavior can result in a loss of credit for that day or dismissal from the program.
During class we study the MN driver's manual, complete worksheets, discuss driving topics, view videos, play games, and complete assignments.
