Road TRAINING FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1) How soon can I get my training done?
We recommend spacing driving lessons out at least a couple weeks so you have time to practice the techniques we worked on during your lesson. If you are in need to getting your training completed faster, that is a possibility depending on how flexible your schedule is. Our schedule is typically booked out 1-2 weeks, so you will need to plan ahead with regard to when you want to get started.
2) How much training do I need?
Most people under estimate the training time they will need to become a proficient driver (and pass their road test). If you are not sure, I would start with a 2-hour driving lesson and talk with the instructor about it afterwards. His/Her assessment should help you decide how to move forward.
3. Can I do 1-hour lessons instead of 2 hour lessons?
Though our system is set up for 2-hour lessons, we do allow 1-hour sessions at a rate of $60 per hour. All signup will be the same, you will just need to contact us with your availability so we can fit you in.
4. Do I need to take the classroom session?
If you are under the age of 18, then yes it is required. If you are over 18, we highly recommend taking the classroom training as well as the road training if you are just getting started with driving. Driving is not just being able to operate a car, it's being able to understand the rules, signs and the responsibilities that come with driving. Many adults will skip the classroom training because its not required, however the process of learning takes them far longer then those students who attend both.
5. Why a pickup and drop off fee?
Our lessons are two hours in duration. When the instructor has to come to you and drop you off it turns into a 2.5 hour lesson. The additional time and miles on the car are offset with the added pickup/drop-off fee. This is paid at the time of the lesson.
6. What do I NEED to bring to my Behind-the-Wheel lessons?
At the minimum you must have a permit or drive'rs license. If you are just doing one lesson (a refresher to prepare for MN road test) we will accept a permit or license from out of state/country. However if you are planning to do more than one lesson you are required to get a MN permit (take a written test). MN law requires you to have a valid MN permit for us to provide training.
6. How to schedule lessons after registration and payment is done?
You should have received a username and password. Click on the Student Login button at the top of the screen and follow the steps to log in.
