Driver Education Class

What happens after I complete the class?

After the course is completed, the student needs to take the permit test and get a permit from the DMV. Once the student has the permit, the behind-the-wheel program can begin.

How long does it take to complete the class?

The class consists of 30 one-hour lessons, and students can complete up to two lessons per day. The course can be completed in as few as 15 days but should be completed within 90 days of beginning the first lesson. If the student doesn't complete the course within that time frame, the course can be extended to 30 days for $15.


What is your refund policy?

There are no refunds.

Are your instructors licensed?

Yes, each of our instructors is licensed by the state of Wisconsin to teach classroom and behind-the-wheel training to all age groups.

Do you charge a cancellation fee?

If you fail to show up for a lesson or do not cancel or reschedule on our website at least 24 hours in advance, you will be charged a $50 late cancellation fee. You will not be able to schedule another drive time until this is paid.

Driving Lessons

How fast can I complete behind-the-wheel lessons?

This depends on your scheduling flexibility and instructor availability. You can take one 2-hour behind-the-wheel lesson each day and you can drive up to two times in one week. We recommend that you spread your drive times out during the time you have your permit. The first lesson is supposed to take place within 60 days of getting the permit. We also recommend saving the last drive time for a time within a couple of weeks of the Road Test so the information is fresh.
