Classroom Driver Ed Completion Next Steps

You must have completed a 30-hour Driver Education Classroom session, be 15 years of age or older, and be enrolled in an active Behind-the-Wheel course to obtain your Blue Card. You will need to bring your Blue Card to the exam center to take your Knowledge Test (Permit Test).

Our Community Education Behind-the-Wheel offerings are limited. Our BTW sessions are limited in nature and do fill very quickly. Please plan accordingly when scheduling your Knowledge Test noting you must also be in an active session of BTW so that you may obtain your Blue Card to bring with to the exam center.

Beginning July 13, 2020, Minnesotans will now be able to schedule appointments online for class D knowledge tests at any of the 14 regional DVS exam stations. 

To schedule an appointment go to, select Schedule or Reschedule an Exam, follow the prompts.

Anyone who cannot keep an appointment should cancel their appointment at with as much notice as possible so that appointment can be opened up for someone else.  We have heard that these appointments may be scheduling out some distance.
