Welcome to Ries Driving School!

We have been the city of Fond du Lac and surrounding area’s premiere source for Driver’s Education since 1969. We offer high quality classroom, and Behind-the-Wheel instruction to teens and adults. Our student’s that we service live within a 45 mile radius of our headquarters in Fond du Lac.

For Behind the Wheel Program Students and Parents: If you are looking to schedule your next driving lesson, note that our office begins coordinating your appointment one week in advance, with the schedule book opening up on Monday’s at 9:00AM.

As of January 1st 2024, drivers under the age of 18 will need to complete an in person road test to obtain their Probationary License. Additionally, we anticipate questions from students and families about “exceptions,” or allowing individuals to have their test waived. We can state confidently that tests will be required starting January 1st; no exceptions. Road tests are scheduled 11 weeks in advance at

Instructor was very kind. Had a calm voice and very relaxed. Kid's first day there. He answered questions and helped her feel more comfortable before getting in. Great experience so far.

I recommend 100% this School. I’m from Colombia and I was struggling to find a driving school close to Green lake, they actually don’t have classes there, but they helped me picking me up there. Also for someone who is from another country, it’s hard to understand the traffic rules and how the traffic works, but my instructor Joe, who I think is the owner, was awesome, he made sure that I were understand everything, and he taught me things not only to take the road test but also for my daily driving. Don't doubt to take your driving lessons with them, the customer service is great as well. I took around 5 or 6 lessons and I got my driver's license on the first try. Thank you!

Ries is a place I've been very grateful for for the past three years of my life. Even as an adult, I learned a lot and improved a lot from two of the instructors Joe and Pat. I went through many hardships and overcame them to get my driver's license at 22 years old. If you're an adult and you're hesitant on getting a license, don't be. Practice brings you very far and Ries will make sure you can cross the finish line and pass your driver's test with flying colors! Thank you, Joe! Thank you, Pat! And good luck to everyone else that wants to go for a license themselves!

Passed my road-test last Dec 12 2022 and I couldn’t done it without the help of Joe.With my anxiety and knowing that I’m from another country and driving here is way different from ours in terms of strict rules and regulations but Joe had taught me patiently, instilled me the knowledge in driving, the right and lawful way! Mostly his encouragement, lessons and trust given towards me was incredible. Also, the staff, from scheduling the dates and reminding me to not missed it, Thank you! I’m beyond grateful! RIES IS Highly recommended!

I’m a 71 year old lady .. never had a license before.. just passed my road test..first try! Couldn’t have done it without Joe! He’s the best.. drove with him this summer, he told me “he’d never Throw me to the wolves if I wasn’t ready” and he didn't! He’s very laidback and has a lot of patience not to mention knowledge you’ll need to know.. the staff is great and if I can do it.. anybody can!! Well worth your time!!!!!!👍🏻👍🏻
