Options & Costs
Driver Education consists of three parts: the online class, six hours of driving and the State-required drive test; click below to see our variety of program/payment options. We also offer additional options to meet the individual needs of older teens and adult drivers. Driving is by appointment only.
Our free, convenient permit prep seminar is a big hit for the student that wants some classroom instruction to prepare for the learner permit test. Seminars are offered every other Saturday at our Evansville office and also in some area high schools.

Driver’s Ed in Indiana is complicated.
We make it easier!
Behind The Wheel offers full-service, year-round, State-accredited instruction to nine southern Indiana counties that:
- Involves both the beginning driver and the parents
- Allows students to start learning immediately (no waiting for a class or summer program to begin!)
- Provides the Certificate of Driver Education Enrollment (CDE) form required in order to get a permit at age 15 (online course-only schools CANNOT issue this form)
- Features a convenient, online course that can be completed anytime, day or night
- Includes an optional, FREE two-hour prep seminar to help students pass the learner permit test
- Offers pick-up from home or school for all drive sessions at no extra charge…that saves busy parents both time and gas!
Rest assured: Behind The Wheel is fully accredited by the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles along with all of its instructors, who undergo a thorough certification process, including an in-depth background check and physical exam. Students drive one-on-one with the instructor in our fully-insured vehicles, and parents are always encouraged to talk with the instructor about the skills their child needs to practice between drives.
