Teen Driver’s Education

To help each young person to become a safe and skillful lifetime driver, we include in our program:

  • Signs, Signals and Roadway Markings
  • Wisconsin Division of Motor Vehicles laws and procedures
  • You as a driver in the Highway Transportation System
  • Effective Seeing Habits on the Road
  • Understanding Vehicle Controls
  • Driving in City and Country Environments
  • Dealing with Other Roadway Users
  • Coping with Driving Emergencies
  • Alcohol, Drugs and Other Risk Factors
  • Responsibilities of Vehicle Ownership
  • Defensive Driving Strategies
  • Much More!

 

Our Classroom Program

*Traditional in-person offerings have been postponed due to COVID-19*

We offer several modes of learning dependent on your schedule: online, virtual, as well as traditional (in-person).

In our Online Program it is self-paced and most suitable for students who have a busy schedule. A student may not complete the program in under 19 days.

The Virtual Program allows students to receive live interaction (face to face over video feed) from our classroom instructors from the convenience of home at designated times and days of the week. The software program that we utilize is Zoom. Similar to our traditional in-personal classroom, our virtual program allows our students to learn remotely with PowerPoints, videos, and conversations with our instructors in a fun and personalized environment.

The State of Wisconsin mandates that students under the age of 18 take a total of thirty hours of learning in the Driver’s Education classroom setting.

 

Our Behind-the-Wheel Program

For those with a valid Instruction Permit (Temporary Permit), we tailor Behind-the-Wheel lessons in our late-model instruction cars to suit the needs and schedules of our students. The standard program is six hours of driving practice and six hours of on-the-road observation. We pick up and drop off as needed in the city of Fond du Lac and at agreed sites in outlying areas. See below for specific locations our service areas.

For a fee, we offer a Road Test Lesson on the day of a student’s state road test: our instructor will pick up the student, help prepare for the Road Test as the student drives to the DMV, and accompany the student to drop-off after the test and licensing are finished. Register for a Road Test Lesson Here.

For the best selection on behind-the-wheel appointments, call on a Monday. When scheduling, please request the most suitable location for you. Students may meet our instructors at the same location for all six lessons, or mix the selection.
