Frequently Asked Questions

1. How do I register for driver’s education?

You can register for your driver’s education program by calling us at 920.652.9200 or by searching for our available classes and fill out a registration form on the bottom of that page.

2. When should I begin my driver’s education program?

The ideal time to begin classroom is about 15 years to 15 + 3 months or older. It is best to complete the required 30 hours of classroom time prior to turning 15 1/2 yrs. old.

3. What is the required number of classroom hours?

A student under the age of 18 is required by law to complete 30 hours of classroom.

4. When can I get my temporary license from the local Department of Motor Vehicles?

You must be 15 1/2 years of age and also be registered for a driver’s education classroom in order to receive your temporary license.  A MV3001 form is required to take the temps test.  The parent and/or student should ask the driving school for the MV3001 form.  From the date you receive your temps, you must wait 6 months until you are eligible to take your road test.

It is during this 6 month period that we will schedule your behind the wheel lessons. We offer a basic course of 6 – 2 hour lessons or 9 – 1 hour private lessons.

5. When should I call to schedule my first behind-the-wheel lesson?

It is required by the state that the first behind-the-wheel lesson be within 60 days from the date the MV3001 form is signed by the driving school.  After you pass the written temps exam, be sure to call our office immediately to schedule your first behind-the-wheel lesson. You may also schedule more future lessons at this time (check with our office staff).

If you need to cancel a driving lesson, please call our office at least 24 hours before the scheduled lesson or a no show fee will be assessed. If our office is not open, please leave a message on the answering machine.

If you do not complete one driving lesson within the required 60 days, your temporary license will be cancelled with the Department of Transportation.

If your temporary license is cancelled, you will have to pay a reinstatement fee, obtain an application from us to get your temporary license again, and your six month waiting period will start all over again.

6. When can I schedule my road test?

You can schedule your road test anytime within the last 11 weeks prior to your 6 month waiting period. Road tests are scheduled electronically on-line at the Wisconsin Department of Transportation website or by clicking on the “schedule your road test” button located on our “student” page.

As soon as you have scheduled your road test, call us to set up your final behind-the-wheel lesson. This final lesson must be completed before your road test can be taken.
