Somebody told me that I can skip out of attending a driver training school if my parents give me behind-the-wheel training instead. Is that permissible in Minnesota?
Each state has its own rules regarding behind-the-wheel training. Some states will allow parentally-supervised behind-the-wheel training as a substitute for taking a driver training course which is taught by a professional driving instructor. However, not all states allow this. You should contact the Minnesota DMV to find out for sure.
I have no clue how to drive a stick-shift vehicle. What happens if Life Skills Driving Instruction makes me train on a manual-shift vehicle?
Considering the fact you are a brand new driver, you probably don't know much about operating ANY type of vehicle....manual OR automatic! If you prefer to do your hands-on driver training with an automatic-shift vehicle, you may want to call Life Skills Driving Instruction and let them know before you enroll in their driver training course. That way you'll know for certain whether Life Skills Driving Instruction can accommodate you before you pay them any money.

We recommend that you contact Life Skills Driving Instruction directly to find out exactly what they offer.
Now that I'm 14, will Minnesota allow me to get an instruction permit to drive?
