Get your temps and your license with expert preparation from Door to Door Driving School. You’ll receive a number of practice "temps tests" covering topics like road sign identification or multiple choice knowledge questions. This course covers your 30 hour Wisconsin Department of Transportation classroom requirement over the course of 15 two hour sessions. Your driver’s ed training will be fun and engaging, featuring indoor and outdoor activities like experiencing the inside of an actual semi-truck with a 53 foot trailer.

Three guest speakers will share their "on the road" experiences and knowledge with the student driver:

  • A special agent with the Union Pacific Railroad
  • A professional semi truck driver, a member of the “Wisconsin Road Team,” who’s logged millions of miles incident-free
  • A police officer from the Mukwonago Police Department

Do you know there is at least one train/vehicle/pedestrian collision a month in southeastern Wisconsin? Driver Education DemonstrationDo you know railroad crossings are considered an intersection? Do you know the speed a train is moving is deceiving because the shape of the train does not change as it approaches a crossing? Are you aware of how much a trucker can see from their rig, and more importantly, how much they can't see? How has the driving task evolved into multi-tasking when you are driving? Do you know why truckers need to have all drivers stop prior to the stop line? What is the process an officer will follow when suspicious of a driver under the influence? Who is allowed to ride in the back of a pickup truck? What light colors are allowed on a vehicle? You’ll learn all this and more both behind the wheel and in our coursework, drawn from the Wisconsin Motorist’s Handbook and our textbook Drive Right.

Outline of your Behind the Wheel Driving Experience

Parents and students alike love the convenience offered by Door to Door Driving school. From home, from school or from work, your Door To Door Driving Instructor will pick you up for each drive! You’ll receive useful feedback every session, helping you on your path to becoming a licensed, safe, and courteous driver.

There are 6 2-hour shared drive sessions for the student driver. Drive partner/s can be chosen or matched up with thought put into compatibility. The first driver will be picked up and begins the drive lesson en route to the home of their driving partner. Each student receives driving time and meaningful, required observation time. The observing student will stay engaged, learning about pavement markings, interacting with other drivers, the impact of weather and many other facets of the day's lesson.

Drive Session One: Rural and Residential Roadways

Your first driving session will cover driving on rural roads, learning about characteristics of these roadways, experiencing how to properly drive on hills and curves, approach and drive through an intersection, make right turns and left turns — the driving basics!

  • Exterior and interior check of vehicle
  • Teach vehicle controls/safety equipment
  • Roadside stop

  • Y-Turn
  • Backing into a driveway

  • Angle parking on the left and right
  • Perpendicular parking on the left and right
  • Parallel parking
  • Leaving a parking space
  • Tips for safe driving in a parking lot

  • Recognizing a one way street
  • What to do when you are at the end of a one way street
  • Turning left
  • Turning right
  • Driving Straight
  • What to do if a wrong way driver is coming at you
  • Left turn at a traffic light lacking a left turn arrow

Drive Session Six: Practice Road Test.

Your practice road test will be as close as possible to your coming experience with the DMV road examiner. Just like the real thing, your test will take about 15-20 minutes and utilize the actual DMV score sheet. The remaining drive time will be used to polish drive skills that were less than perfect on the day’s practice road test. Drive session six covers:

  • Demonstration of safety equipment in the DMV parking lot
  • Safely and knowledgably interacting with traffic and other roadway users
  • Practicing other driving maneuvers
