Driver education classes offered by Community Education and Safeway Driving School this summer
Anoka-Hennepin Community Education offers driver education in partnership withSafeway Driving School to provide an additional opportunity for students to complete their classroom and behind-the-wheel instruction.
Community Education is currently enrolling students for summer classes in July and August, which will now be held online rather than the previously scheduled school locations:
Driver education classes are open to teens ages 15 and up, and will be held online with a licensed instructor in July and August, due to a variance from the Minnesota Department of Transportation, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Classroom sessions prepare students for the Minnesota driver's permit test and becoming a responsible driver.
Behind-the-wheel includes six hours of driving in three, two-hour sessions on actual city streets, highways and freeways. Additional safety precautions are being implemented.
Instructors are licensed by the Minnesota Department of Public Safety and complete a background check each year. Instructors have experience teaching teens and receive extensive training.
