Fall 2020 update
Our Rochester Class Calendar is now open for Registration through Aug 2021!
Knowledge Exam (Permit Test) can now be taken at home - currently the system is down but should be up and running soon. This link will also allow you to schedule in-person test.
IN-THE-CLASSROOM DRIVER'S ED: Rochester, PEM, Winona, La Crescent & Chatfield are running as normal with classes being offered in the school. These locations are open to ALL students who would like to attend (even if you do not go to that high school) Click on the New Student Link above to get started.
ONLINE CLASSROOM: (OPEN TO ALL STUDENTS) Unfortunately Byron & Dover-Eyota are not allowing classes in the High Schools at this time. We have opened our full Rochester schedule (through Aug 2021) to the Online Training Option for students from all of SE MN (at this point we don't know if this option will be extended to spring). This Online class will be instructor led and follow the same dates and times as listed in the Fall Rochester Schedule. Your driving lessons location will be assigned as normal. For example, if you are a Winona Student doing Online Classes, you will still have your driving lessons in Winona.

Welcome to EDI
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."
