Drivers' Education

2020-2021 Classroom Sessions (New Drivers)

Drivers' Education will take place in November (tentatively) and again in 2021. Complete the registration form to participate.

November 2020 classes:
November 10, 11, 12, 13, 16, 18, 19, 20 from 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., and Saturdays November 14, 21 from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.

We must have a minimum of 12 students per class with a maximum of 30 students. By paying your fee, you will be locked in for the classroom session. A reminder that students that miss any class time for any reason will need to make up (and pay for) the time missed. A student may miss up to one classroom session. If a student misses two or more classroom sessions, they will be dropped from the classroom session. Parents, a reminder as you determine when to sign up your student, they can not take their permit (written) test until they are 15 years old. It is our intention to hold a classroom session again in March of 2021 as well as at least one more classroom during 2021. We try to encourage students not to do the classroom until as close to their 15th birthday as possible so that the information and learning done in the classroom remains fresh in their minds. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Jeff Boran at 507-362-4403 / jboran@wem.k12.mn.us.
