" I built EDI from the ground up in 2009 to exceed state standards and provide the level of education and training that I want for my own children. We have since become the top driving school in SE Minnesota. As a former Law Enforcement Officer, an M.B.A. and a father to some amazing little people, I know what is important to both parents and fellow road users. Accidents are the leading cause of death in teenagers. The road you and your Teen share is becoming more congested while less attention is being given to the task at hand, responsible driving. At EDI we not only prepare students how to safely operate a vehicle, we prepare them how to predict and avoid the mistakes of other drivers as that is the key to their road success. The window of opportunity to build a solid foundation of safe driving is small. You just made the first step in lowering their risk, welcome to EDI."
