Behind the Wheel 101

St. Michael-Albertville Community Education is NOT affiliated with any other driving school.  

Only students who completed Driver Education through the St. Michael-Albertville Community Education are allowed to schedule Behind the Wheel lessons with our instructors.

Immediately after your student has obtained their Permit, contact Connie Peters by email to let her know your student passed their Permit Test. Students will then be put on her list for Behind the Wheel instruction.
Connie Peters:

Please provide Connie with the following information about your student when you email her:

Students begin driving with parents/guardians as soon as they have their Permit.
Students start logging Behind the Wheel hours as soon as they have their Permit. Either use the Supervised Driving Log that was provided during the Driver Education class or use the Road Ready App to log their driving hours.

  • The Behind the Wheel log must be turned into DVS when taking the Road Test. Make sure to print the log if using the Road Ready App. 
  • Remember, it can take up to a year (or more) for students to log the required number of Behind the Wheel hours.

A $40 Behind the Wheel fee is charged, below are a few examples of when the fee will be charged. The fee must be paid before any additional lessons will be scheduled.
