Driver Education


Crookston Public Schools offers Driver Education to students enrolled in Crookston Public Schools.  Sessions will be offered in the fall, spring, and summer to accommodate students needs.  The cost for Driver Education is $325.  There will be NO refunds should a student fail or drop out of the Driver Education Program.  The $325 fee includes classroom instruction and six hours of behind the wheel instruction.  Students need to schedule Driver Education as a priority and need to be prepared to complete all assigned work to complete the course!  

Effective January 1, 2015, every driver under the age of 18 who completes behind the wheel instruction and is testing for a provisional driver’s license must submit a driving log. Parents/guardians have two options regarding the supervised driving log:

• Complete a supplemental parent class provided by a driver education program approved in Minnesota, and then submit a supervised driving log showing their teen has completed at least 40 hours (2,400 minutes) of supervised driving, 15 (900 minutes) of which are nighttime hours; OR

• If the parent/guardian chooses to not complete the supplemental parent class, the driving log must show that their teen has completed at least 50 hours (3,000 minutes) of supervised driving, 15 (900 minutes) of which are nighttime hours.

Parents/guardians are encouraged to provide as many additional driving hours with their teen as possible to prepare them to become a safe driver. The driving log must be presented at the time of the road test and submitted with the application for the provisional license.
