Gregory Schoemer | Owner of Cruise Control Driving School, LLC / WI Licensed Instructor

I am Greg Schoemer, Owner of Cruise Control Driving School, LLC. I am a 2007 graduate of South High School in Sheboygan. As a 12-year-old, I began to pursue my passion in fishing and working as a first mate on a local charter service. My skills, abilities, and personable advancements were expanding at a fast rate which landed me a full-time summer job at the age of 13. That job was the start of my passion not only to fish but to work and teach a wide range of individuals on a regular basis. I continued my journey in the fishing industry after high school by obtaining a captain’s license through the United States Coast Guard and a guide and sport trolling license holder through the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.

I was working year-round on the water and in the field with clients from all over the world. The best part about that job was the personal satisfaction of excited clients that were successful from me showing them how to hunt and fish that particular day and how they applied my teachings into their own adventures. In my early 20s, I wanted to expand my adulthood and purchase a home. In the slower seasons of guiding, I took a seasonal position at Masters Gallery Foods in the warehouse division as a forklift operator/material handler. A freak accident happened that smashed my left foot causing it to be partially amputated. At that point, I decided to give up my full-time fishing career and stick to the warehouse even after the major life-altering injury. In my time at MGF, I was given a wide range of roles and was leaned on to train new employees on forklift and yard semi operation. The training element was my favorite part of the job as it touched my passion to work with and train people on how to be successful.

Early in 2018, Mark Reinemann (Founder), approached me to become the new owner of Cruise Control Driving School! I was thrilled for the opportunity as I’ve always had an entrepreneur mindset and was going to get me back into a role of teaching and training a young, excited group of individuals on a major step in their journey towards adulthood. I am honored to be in this position now and look forward to teaching your child to be a safe, defensive, and responsible driver. I have left my position at MGF to put all my heart and passion into continuing the success of this business and preparing students not only for driving but to be successful in all aspects of life! Thank for visiting our website and we look forward to meeting you and your child!

COVID-19 UpdateWith things changing frequently in the world, I will do my best to update on the operating measures I will be going at.

The optimistic spring class has now been canceled as the rentable space will be closed for longer than expected with an uncertain timeframe on when things will be settled enough to offer a group classroom.  I still have about 25 spots left available for the June summer courses.  If that can go as scheduled, I plan to hold a class in August as well but I am waiting to open that for enrollment at this time.  I have decided to delay completing my self-filmed courses at this time as I just don’t think it will offer the interaction that the in-class option is designed to have.  I will continue to offer new students to do the WPDSA online program at a first confirm first serve basis.  Next current spots are at the end of April and booking out further with regular interest.

Per the DOT, it is my decision on what to do with behind the wheel lessons.  I am going to continue to offer them for now on a 1-1 basis to limit exposure and fewer surfaces to keep routinely sanitized.  Again, if I am having symptoms or if you or family is experiencing symptoms, then we will need to reschedule.  There is no pressure to take the lessons at this time but with the uncertainty of the time frame, I will need some patience to fit students back in.  I will always do my best to ensure the student can complete when they are eligible and want to.   The DMV has currently canceled road tests for the time being!

Thank you all for your patience and support through these difficult times.  --Greg Schoemer
