Behind The Wheel
Students schedule their own required hours and can be picked up and dropped off from any location in the Fargo/Moorhead area. Students follow a multi-step driving curriculum which includes, (but is not limited to) gravel, interstate, two lane highway, roundabouts, all 3 types of parking, major streets and avenues in the area and more.
Road Test Waiver
When you take the 6 hours of behind the wheel from GGDS and complete the 30-hour class from a certified school, GGDS may be able to conduct the road test instead of taking it at the DMV. See the permit study book, page 2 for more information.
GGDS is usually 5 months out with their drive bookings. Online class is not $140 because of the raising of the cost with our old host. We had to develop a new platform and costs went up.
Online Class and Drive $515: 30-hour class and the 6 hours of behind the wheel.

Please note that the PERMIT testing location in Fargo is now in the strip mall to the east of Hornbachers off 13th Ave and 42nd St S. Testing times are 8am-11am and 1pm-4pm, Monday - Friday.
The Class (ND residents only)
Students follow a 30-hour curriculum that they complete at their own pace. The curriculum includes power points, movies and short answer/essay tests. Students MUST reach 30 or more hours and can not just sit on a lesson to receive time on timer. Ethics is at the forefront here. GGDS correcting teachers will contact your registered email with instructions and comments. Please check your email often and READ this feedback.
DMV sends you to GGDS
You may have failed the test too many times and the DMV requires you to contact a driving school for more lessons. GGDS will charge an hourly rate. We usually do a minimum of two hours.
One hour evaluation session
One hour lesson
When GGDS is confident you are ready to test again, GGDS will give you a certificate of training to take to the DMV.
