Driver Education

Stillwater Community Education has a partnership with Safeway Driving School to offer a convenient teen driver education program in our schools. All instructors are licensed through the Minnesota Dept of Public Safety. The 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. After-school classes are offered at Stillwater Area High School. Make-up lessons can be completed in any other Stillwater Community Education class or Safeway classroom session. Students can take class at age 14½ but cannot take their permit test until age 15.

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. Lessons can be scheduled by calling the Safeway office. Lessons can be scheduled online at www.safewaydrivingschool.com 

Parent Involvement: It is critical that parents plan to practice regularly with their newly permitted drivers. Safeway offers detailed information on its web site to assist parents with understanding MN laws and requirements for student drivers. There is also a bi-monthly Parent Class offered at Safeway’s Stillwater classroom. Safeway strongly encourages all parents to review its Parent Information section at www.safewaydrivingschool.com.

Fee: The fee for the program includes classroom instruction, materials and behind-the-wheel training. Permit and road exam fees are not included. Fee assistance may be available for those who qualify. Call for an application form.
