Thank you for your interest in ESSE Driving School!

Every year since 1968, ESSE Driving School has trained thousands of teens in the laws, maneuvering skills, and crash avoidance habits that mark an accident free driver. In addition to belonging to the 2 nationally recognized driving school associations (The North American Professional Driver Education Association and The driving School Association of the Americas), we invest heavily in our individual instructors and stand behind them as the best in the industry. We would put them up against any others, anywhere. We take pride in what we believe is the most effective, flexible and reasonably priced program available.

We Offer:

  • Classroom
  • Behind- The- Wheel
  • Private Lessons
  • Free Pick -up
  • Minnesota Licensed
  • Bonded/ Insured
  • Any Age Driver

Each school is independently owned and operated.



Esse Driving School is experiencing some changes that may affect our students preparing for their road test.

 We are sad to announce that after 13 years with us, Lee is retiring.  His last class will be Oct. 31st. He has completed his current students and is no longer conducting BTW instruction.

Becky will be on Medical leave for knee surgery, during our slow season, beginning Oct. 15 through Nov. 26. 

She will be returning to regular schedule around the last week of November, 2018.

If your student has a road test scheduled between Oct. 15 and Nov. 26th, we will do our best to accommodate those who need to finish their 6 hours of Behind-the-Wheel, PRIOR to Becky’s medical leave.


We have good news, too! 

Our new instructor, Wendy Thomas, is in the process of obtaining her Instructor’s License in the next month and will be available for Behind-the-Wheel instruction sometime in December.

I appreciate your patience and understanding during these transitions to provide the best service possible to our students and their parents.
