Big Changes for Driver's Education at La Crescent-Hokah Schools in 2019-20!

We are pleased to fully welcome Enhanced Driving Institute as the classroom education program provider in addition to the Behind the Wheel instruction they've already been providing. We thank Mr. Scott Martin and Mr. Al Spande for their past dedication and service to the Driver's Education program. With this transition comes a few changes that we'd like to highlight for you.


How do I sign up?
Sign up will now be directly through EDI's Online Registration system at www.EnhancedDrivingInstitute.com at the La Crescent Hokah specific link. From the home page, click La Crescent-Hokah link and you’ll see the full class schedule and the option to register. $100 is needed to hold your seat for the class. You can pay this at the time of registration online or mail payment to our Rochester Office. Students and Parents will receive an email 2-3 days before class starts with information pertaining to the class.

Who is EDI?
EDI has been providing peace of mind to parents of Teen Drivers for over a decade and is the top driving school in SE Minnesota. Not only does EDI raise the bar in education, we also make it fun and interesting for teens. EDI’s strength and success in building a new generation of safer driver’s falls on our partnership with parents. We strongly encourage all parents to attend the final half of lesson 10 where we develop a game plan that will start the course to a safe, responsible and educated new driver.

Who can take driver’s ed?
You must be 14 and up to take the classroom course. However you cannot take your permit test until you are 15 so we recommend taking the course when you are 15 or close to.

What if I have questions?
Please feel free to call the Community Education office at 895-5150 with questions, or CONTACT EDI directly, at the information listed below.
