Driver's Education

A staff person is available at the Community Education office Monday-Friday, 8 am-330 pm (except holidays and some non-school days) to pick up the Blue Card, be assigned a Behind-the-Wheel (BTW) instructor, etc. If you have questions, call Community Education at 763.682.8770. If you need to pay your student's behind-the-wheel No Show fee, CLICK HERE to be directed to our registration site.  Don't wait until the deadline to register... classes fill quickly so early registration is encouraged. 

BHM Community Education offers classroom instruction and behind-the-wheel instruction year round. It is recommended students are age 15 by the last day of classroom instruction as this is the age the student needs to be to take the Written Knowledge Test. The $395 fee includes 30 hours of classroom instruction AND 6 hours of behind-the-wheel instruction with a licensed teacher.  BTW instruction is typically scheduled one-hour each month for six months. Once you have your Instructional Permit, do not wait to schedule your first BTW instruction.

Driver’s Education is not funded by the state department, therefore, all costs must be incurred by the family upon registering. (No discounts or scholarships are available for the driver education program.)

Online registration is the fastest and easiest way to register or download and print the registration form below.  To register by phone, or if you have questions, call 763.682.8770. 


The DMV requires parent/students to schedule an appointment for the Written Knowledge Test.  A Blue Card is needed to take the Written Knowledge Test. The Blue Card will be given to students at the last class if they completed the course work, are registered for BTW with Community Education and are age 15.  Student’s who are age 14 can choose to be given their Blue Card after the last class and keep it in a safe place until they turn age 15 or they can pick up their Blue Card at the Community Education office, 301 NE 2nd Ave Buffalo, M-F, 8 am-330 pm, when they turn age 15. The student must be present to sign the Blue Card.

To schedule the Written Knowledge Test or Road Test Exam with the State of Minnesota, visit to schedule at The Wright County Government Center or to schedule at a different location.
