Info

Offered throughout the school year and summer by Brainerd Public Schools Community Education
Taught by college trained Department of Education certified instructors. Let our Brainerd teachers help you meet the State Driver Education requirements!

To complete the classroom portion of the program DURING THE SCHOOL YEAR, students will meet three times a week; Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays for three hours each day. Students registered for one of our SUMMER SESSIONS, will meet five times a week; Monday through Friday for three hours each day. Attendance each day is mandatory to gain the 30 hours of classroom training which is required by state law! On the last day, a State Examiner from the Minnesota Department of Public Safety will administer the written test required for a driver s permit. Students must be 15 years of age (age exceptions must be discussed when registering), and provide the examiner with the following: a certified copy of their birth certificate and an additional form of identification, such as a social security card, a certified copy of a school transcript, or a valid passport. Other secondary forms will be explained in class.

The next five sessions will be on the simulator. All simulator classes are 1.5 hours except the last class which is two hours long. *Missed simulation classes result in the need for extra driving time to meet state requirements. If one class is missed, the student must pay for 1/2 hour of extra on street driving at the cost of $23 in order to meet the requirements. Any remaining balance or additional charges incurred after the first date of class must be paid by cash or credit card; no checks will be accepted. **Students will be allowed to register for behind the wheel dates at the end of simulation or drive at a later date.

To ensure that this driver s education program is safe and appropriate, please indicate on the registration form whether the student has any special needs or requires any accommodations to be successful in this program.

Class size is limited, so register early!
Note Policy Change! In order to be reimbursed for canceling a class or to be moved to another section, you must notify the Community Education office at least seven business days prior to the start of class.

After completing 30 hours of classroom, the student will spend eight hours in the simulator. Behind the wheel dates are made by appointment during the school year (an instructor will call). Most people will be done driving 3-6 weeks after simulation unless they choose to wait. Students will complete the entire course within one year of their first classroom session. A $60 fee will be assessed to those waiting longer than a year. Anyone waiting 18 months or longer will pay $90 and $5 per month thereafter.

After eight hours of simulation, four hours of behind the wheel are required. However, whenever possible, students will be scheduled to drive with a driving partner and will spend half of their eight in-car hours observing and the other half driving. Students who cancel or wish to move to another section with less than seven business days notice, prior to the class start date will forfeit $115 of their tuition. If a student withdraws from the program after beginning classroom they will forfeit $115 of their tuition. If a student withdraws from the program after beginning simulation, $205 will be forfeited.

Students who don t show up for scheduled behind the wheel driving appointments will be charged $37. Cancellations must be made at least 24 hours before the driving is scheduled.

This agreement/contract constitutes an agreement/contract between the program and the student/parent and no verbal statements or promises will be recognized.

NOTE: The 90 minute parent course we offer for the primary driving supervisor will be free of charge to parents whose student s tuitions are paid in full.
