Signing up FAQ

1) How do I know if the class I want still has openings?

​During the school year it is rare for a class to fill up.  However summer sessions will fill up.  To check on availability go to the registration page to sign up for the package you would like.   If you can register for a class, there is still room in the class.  If the class is not listed, it means all seats are full.  Feel free to use the contact from below if you have a question on class space.  With Online Options available, we can usually accomadate most student needs.  


2)  I am not able to make it to all the classroom sessions.  Can I still sign up?

​We expect our students to place their driver's ed high on the priority list, however we understand that unavoidable conflicts do happen. Though most driving schools require you to come back the following month, we provide a couple options to help teens complete their training with us.  They are as follows:



  • $10 Charge - Making up the lesson in an alternate session when available.  This can sometimes be up to 1-month out depending on the next class schedule.  This  does not need to be scheduled, students can just show up.

  • ​$25 Charge - Make up the lesson Online in the convenience of your home.  Click the lesson needed, pay the fee and start today!  Completion Certificate Emailed to show your instructor.  

3)   What if I am not 15 yet, can I still take classes?  

MN State Law says you must be at least 14 to begin driver's ed.  Though we prefer you to be as close to 15 as possible to avoid large gaps in education to application, we do allow signups for teens as early as 14.5.  If you will not be 15 within 2 months of completing the classroom, you should be signing up for the classroom only option.  

After turning 15 and beginning your training you will then enroll in the 6-hour BTW package.  

 

4.  What if I cannot attend the Student/Parent Session?

This is very important part of our program as we need parents to be on the same page as EDI during this vital year of training.  However we understand that work or other conflicts can get in the way.  We do not require parents to attend, though we ask them to make the commitment in their teens road safety by attending.  I assure you that you will find the time spent to be of value during the next year of training.  

We have over a 95% turnout in every class!  If you are not able to attend, you can attend an alternate session or we ask the students relay the information to you as your role as a Parent Driving Instructor will have more influence on their success then anything we can do as a driving school.  

 

 5.  State Approved Supplimental Parent Class (this is a seperate Parent Only Course, not to be confused with the Student/Parent Course)

Back in 2015, the State of MN approved a new rule that allows parents to provide 40 hours (vs 50) of road training if they attend a 1.5 hour State approved driver's ed course.  EDI has designed this course to be a valuable asset as you move to the passenger seat with a Teen Driver.  

This $25 Self Guided Online Course provides you with a certificate that you can submit to the state of Minnesota to reduce the required training hours from 50 to 40 with your teen.  More impotantly, you will be a far better Parent Driving Instructor!   Click the link below to get signed up and being your training!
