Thirty hours of classroom instruction are required before a student is eligible for behind-the-wheel instruction. Students should be 14 1/2 years old in order to take classroom instruction. After completion of the classroom instruction, students may register with Westonka Driving School or another school of their choice for behind the wheel instruction. There is an additional cost for behind the wheel. When students register for behind the wheel, they will receive a blue card, which will enable them to go and take the written permit test at state exam stations. Rob Illies, Westonka Driving School Non-district residents will not be allowed to register until 2 weeks prior to the start date of each session. A make up day is available by attending a class in a future session or a nearby community.
