Fees and Payment Schedules: The total cost for the behind the wheel drivers education program is $300.00. You can choose to pay the entire amount before the first lesson or divide the cost into two separate payments. A down-payment of $150.00 is due at sign-up and the balance of $150.00 is due when the student has their first Behind the Wheel lesson with an instructor.
Behind the Wheel Training: The standard behind the wheel training program consists of six 2 hour sessions. The student spends one hour operating the vehicle and the other hour observing another driver. Drivers Education of the Fox Cities provides free pick up and drop off of Behind the Wheel (BTW) students over a large area within the Fox River Valley. The free pick up / drop off area includes most of Appleton, Kimberly, Combined Locks, Darboy, Kaukauna, Little Chute, Neenah and Menasha. Call for detailed boundaries or see the Drop off- Pick Up Area map. We offer flexible hours and schedules to accommodate our students but we expect our students to keep scheduled appointments. A no-show fee of $50 is charged for students who fail to keep their lesson appointments. All of our cars and drivers are equipped with cellular phones.
Drivers Education of the Fox Cities makes its cars available for the state road (licensing) test. A $60 fee is charged for the use of the car during the first road test. If a second road test is required a $45 fee is charged for the use of our vehicle. The use of our car is entirely optional.
The State of Wisconsin imposes 2 other requirements on our program: A minimum of 19 days must lapse between the first lesson and the sixth (last) lesson. Behind the wheel training must begin within 60 days of receiving your temporary license (temps).
Adult Lessons: Adult lessons are available for adult drivers who want to improve their driving skills or for those who may not have driven for an extended period of time. Private lessons are given at the rate of $90 per hour.
