Youth Driver's Education/Adult Defensive Driving Classes
Youth driver's education classes and behind the wheel instruction.
Defensive Driving Classes for 55+ drivers
If you are 55 or older, save money on your car insurance premiums and become a better driver! MN law requires insurance companies to offer you a 10% reduction for 3 years if you complete the National Safety Council's Defensive Driving Course taught by professional, certified instructors. The 8 hour class is split over 2 days of classroom instruction-no driving test required. After completing this course and saving 10% for 3 years all you have to do is take the 4 hour refresher for further savings. You will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the class to turn into your insurance company for your discount. Attendance is mandatory at both sessions to complete the course. Pre-registration is required
When Registering- Please include your Name, Address, Phone Number, and birth date.
Drivers Education, both classroom and behind the wheel are conducted through the Community Education/Youth Service Office. See classes/details by clicking on Youth Driver's Ed above.
Behind the Wheel Instruction for obtaining your Driver’s License
If you took the driver's ed classroom thru New London-Spicer you are automatically registered for behind the wheel instruction.
If you did not take the classroom portion through NL-S you must register to be on the call list. Contact the Community Ed Office at 320-354-1406 to find out what is needed to register.
