Distance learning and Covid-19 Statement
DPS has informed us that the variance for distance learning will continue.
We have set dates for 3 more classes. Classes begin on April 19th, May 6th and May 17th. These classes are posted and open for registration.
We are scheduling our summer classes. These will start as soon as school is out and will be posted as soon as dates are finalized. Please put your name on our contact if you wish to be notified about these classes.
Behind The Wheel:
COVID: We have put numerous precautions in place while doing our behind the wheel lessons. The student and instructor must wear masks. The students temp will be taken before the lesson. We have installed a barrier between the student and instructor. We disinfect the vehicle between students. We only run outside air while teaching. We eliminated any physical contact exchanging paperwork or payments.
**We are giving priority to students who have a road test scheduled.** If you do not have a test scheduled yet we will call you in the same order (passed permit notification list) we used previously.
**New** The Virginia exam station is now open for Road Tests. You must make your appointment online and wait outside the door when you arrive.
All road tests are scheduled ONLINE. You cannot call to schedule a test. Go online to:
dvs.dps.mn.gov to schedule a test.
Thank You for your patience.
