Community Education and A+ Driving School offers a comprehensive Drivers Education program exceeding the standard requirements by the state of Minnesota. The course includes defensive driving techniques and hands-on, dynamic curriculum taught by experienced, certified instructors.
You must attend two separate weeks of classroom, the Permit class (week one) and the Skills class (week two) for a total of 30 hours of classroom instruction. You can choose to take the Permit class and Skills class back to back (traditional schedule) or choose to take the Permit class and then at a later date take the Skills class (flexible schedule). If you choose the flexible schedule the Skills class must be completed within 90 days of the first day of the Permit class.
The fee of $185.00 is due upon registration for the Permit class and $15 is due upon registration for the Skills class.
Students are eligible to receive classroom instruction at age 14.5 or older, however students will need to be age 15 to test for the learner’s permit. You can test for your permit after the Permit class. Once you receive a valid permit, you will take 6 hours of private Behind-The-Wheel (BTW) lessons, comprised of three separate 2-hour BTW lessons.
Once a valid permit is received, students will need to take 6 hours of private, in-car, Behind-The-Wheel (BTW) lessons, comprised of three separate 2-hour BTW lessons. Our partner in delivering the classroom drivers education program, A+ Driving School, offers BTW lessons, but this BTW component is not a program of PLSAS Comm. Ed. A+ Driving School instructors may distribute BTW lesson information during classroom instruction, which you may consider in your choice for BTW lesson scheduling.
