This Step: Take Drivers Education
Take Drivers Education in Minnesota
The state enlists a Graduated License Program for new drivers looking to get a license. The first step depends on your age. If you are younger than 18, you must take a state-approved drivers ed course and be enrolled in behind-the-wheel driver training before applying for a Minnesota instruction permit. If you are 18 or older drivers ed isn’t required to get your instruction permit, but it will prepare you for the written test.
The 30-hour classroom drivers ed course covers:
- Minnesota traffic laws
- MN road signs
- Safe-driving practices and more
Once you complete your classroom hours and enroll in behind-the-wheel instruction, you’ll receive a “Blue Card.” Hang on to this as you’ll need to present it to the state when you apply for an MN instruction permit.
