Greetings UPDATED: 03/09/2022
Thank you for visiting our WDTSEA website. We were able to host a virtual conference on March 26, 2021 and a Virtual Workshop on September 29, 2021. The workshop included DMV Representatives, Organ Donation and Power Line Safety updates, as well as Behind the Wheel Teacher Training Theories.
If you need hours to meet educational requirements, please contact Kathy Roe the Business manager and she will let you know how you can view these presentations for license renewal.
A conference was tentatively being planned at the Chula Vista Resort in Wisconsin Dells. Do to unforeseen circumstances we will not be holding the conference in March. The Board will meet virtually in the near future and inform you of future plans.
Nominations for Teacher of the Year, Hall of Fame, and Distinguished Service Award are always welcome. Recognizing those that have served the driver education community is important. If you have someone in mind, the application can be found in the "Recognition" section of this site.
