Is driver education required for me?

It is required for anyone under the age of 18.

How old do I have to be to start driver education?

You can be 15 years and 5 months to begin your driver education course.

I do not have my temporary permit. Can I still enroll?

You can still enroll and take classes before receiving your permit. You will, however, have to obtain your permit before participating in the “in-car” portion of driver’s education. Once you have it, you can start driving with an instructor in your area.

How long will this course take to complete?

In Minnesota, all drivers’ education courses must be at least 24 hours. Each course is scheduled in a 3 week block. Students can miss as many days as they wish however, keep in mind, the state of Minnesota only gives 180 days to complete the entire program

How do the students sign up for driving times? When do the students drive?

Students will be signing up for drive times during the first three days of class. These drive times are in addition to the scheduled classroom times. Driver Education is 24 hours of class time, and 8 hours of driving time. All Star wishes to accommodate families and busy schedules by offering a wide variety of drive times, including before and after class and on weekends. All Star does not assign drive times, we allow the students to schedule their own drive times according to when they are able to drive. Please keep proper documentation of these so you can arrive on time. Any changes needed to be made, please contact the classroom instructor.

NOTE: Parents and Guardians! Please make sure that you let your children know what days and times work for you before the first class they must be able to accurately sign up for driving times that fit your schedule as well as theirs. As mentioned before, the students will have the first three days of class to make any changes necessary to their driving schedules, based on any scheduling problems that you foresee. Keep in mind, the state of Minnesota only gives 180 days to complete the entire program.
