This is a 30 hour state required course to prepare you to take your driver’s permit test. You will not take the actual written permit test in this class. You have to take your permit test at the DMV after you sign up for Behind the Wheel. You may take the class if you are 14 years old, but you cannot take the permit test until you are 15 years old.During this class you will be able to sign up for Behind the Wheel (BTW) for an additional fee. BTW is state required as well, but you can choose to wait to sign up. However, you must be registered for BTW before you can take your permit test. You sign up for and schedule BTW lessons on your own, not through Community Ed. Your classroom teacher is also a BTW teacher. Please call 612.668.4326 for more information.
