"Building a New Generation of Safer Drivers"

Covid-19 jUne 1st update 

for classroom/btw/State road tests/ contract questions.

Starting May 18th, EDI will resume our Behind-the-wheel Lessons schedule.  Students are able to log back into their account and sign up for upcoming time slots.  The following conditions must be met in order to schedule and complete a driving lesson:
1)  Students must show up healthy and well rested for their lesson.
2)  Students are required to bring and wear a mask during driving lessons (Instructors will be as well).  EDI does not have masks available so be prepared and bring one.
3)  Our training vehicles will be wiped down between each lesson.  
We are very excited to resume our Road Training.  Please be patient with us as we work through the increased demand.

EDI Proposal To Provide State Road Testing

We have reached out to the State of MN asking for them to allow our school to provide the State Road Test in an attempt to clean up the backlog the License Bureau has.  We are losing traction as State Officials argue about the pros and cons and it's likely nothing will come of it.  We need your support, please email your state officials, starting with the following and let them know why this is so important and why EDI would be an excellent choice for providing this test due to our passion for safety and our ability to truly evaluate drivers in a fair and unbiased way.  

Senator Karin Housley (sponsored bill to allow 3rd party companies to do testing)


Senator Scott Newman (chair of transportation committee) 


Senator John Marty - APPOSED to allowing anyone other than State Testers do perform road test.

EDI has been providing peace of mind to families for over 10 years. 

Welcome to EDI

Adam Newbloom

Founder of EDI 


" I built EDI from the ground up in 2009 to exceed state standards and provide the level of education and training that I want for my own children.  We have since become the top driving school in SE Minnesota.  As a former Law Enforcement Officer, an M.B.A. and a father to some amazing little people, I know what is important to both parents and fellow road users. Accidents are the leading cause of death in teenagers. The road you and your Teen share is becoming more congested while less attention is being given to the task at hand, responsible driving.  At EDI we not only prepare students how to safely operate a vehicle, we prepare them how to predict and avoid the mistakes of other drivers as that is the key to their road success.  The window of opportunity to build a solid foundation of safe driving is small.  You just made the first step in lowering their risk, welcome to EDI."
