Drivers Education

About This Activity

The Driver's Education Program is divided into two phases:
Classroom Phase
This phase includes the required 30 hours of classroom instruction that prepares the
student to take the Minnesota permit test and to take on the responsibility of driving.
Classes are offered during the school year at North Campus. If a lesson is
missed, a make-up lesson can be arranged with the instructor at either the next White Bear session or at another of Safeway's classroom locations.
Behind-the-Wheel Phase
After students pass the permit test, they are required to complete six hours of driving
lessons. The lessons are provided in three, two-hour lessons. The lessons are one-on-one instruction with instructors licensed through the MN Dept. of Public Safety. Students can be picked up from and dropped off at home, school or work. Detailed information about scheduling the behind-the-wheel lessons will be provided.
Parent Involvement
Safeway offers detailed information on its web site to assist parents with understanding MN laws and requirements for student drivers. It is critical that parents plan to practice regularly with their newly permitted drivers. Safeway strongly encourages all parents to review its Parent Information section at If web access is not available, Safeway will provide this information by mail.
$375 per student includes classroom instruction, materials and behind-the-wheel training. Permit and road exam fees are not included.
