Driver's Education


Goodhue Driver's Education Website

Driver's Education is designed to prepare and educate students about the responsibility and task of driving. Goodhue will offer two yearly sessions: April and August. Students must be at least 14 years old or older in order to participate in driver's ed. The state of Minnesota requires a minimum of 30 hours of in class instruction and 6 hours of behind the wheel. Upon completion of the classroom portion of the class and receive their blue card. Students will then take the written permit test and be eligible for their permit. Once their permit is obtained, they must complete the six hours of behind the wheel and then receive their white card. Students must have their permit for at least 6 months in order to be eligible to take their driver's test. At Goodhue, Mr. Halverson is the primary in-class instructor and Mr. Poncelet is the primary behind-the-wheel instructor, however, both are eligible to do both.
