Behind-the-Wheel - rules and expectations

- To sign up for BTW training go to the UH website (  From there go to Mr. Hemberger’s website (   To schedule a BTW appointment click on Links in the left column. Link #1 will bring you to my BTW appointment calendar.  Find the day and time that works for you and click on that session. REMEMBER the date and time you picked!

Before your last session you need to pay the office $205.

Session start times vary from day-to-day but I will usually have 4 sessions a day Monday-Wednesday. (Other days by appointment)  

- You will be driving/observing for a total of 10 hours.

                 - 1st Session - 1 on 1 / 2 hours / We will be driving to Hawley

                  - 2nd Session - Partner drive / 4 hours / We will be driving to Detroit Lakes

                  - 3rd Session - Partner drive / 4 hours / We will be driving to Fargo-Moorhead

- You MUST bring your permit or papers if you want to drive with Mr. Hemberger.

- I (and your partner) need to know well in advance of your session if you need to reschedule.

- Be on time!  If you are late we will not be driving that day.

- Do not schedule consecutive days for your sessions.  Two weeks between driving sessions is preferred. This allows you to practice and get better at driving skills that need work.

-Your partner should be someone close in age with you.  That ensures that you will both have your permits when you are ready to start BTW.

- Receiving your White Card after completion of 10 hours of BTW is NOT guaranteed.  Those that don’t receive their card will be asked to practice with parents and sign up for another 2 hour session.

- When you are observing when doing the partner drive no phones, books or headphones are allowed.
