About

Driver Education is offered at all Saskatoon Public School collegiates during the school year, as well as two collegiates during the summer months. It is part of the core curriculum. During the school year, students may register at Student Services in their collegiate or apply when selecting courses for the next year. Students wishing to attend a two-week summer school course must register online.

Driver Education is a Grade 10 subject but is offered to students who are 15 years of age at the start date of the course. The course consists of 30 hours of theory instruction and six hours of in-car instruction. Students receive instruction on the:
  • Rules of the road
  • Mental and physical components of driving
  • Correct eye usage
  • Defensive driving
  • Driving in adverse conditions
  • Effects of alcohol, drugs and distractions 
  • Sharing the road with other vehicles in the city and on the highway.
Due to the limited amount of time in Driver Education, students are encouraged to practice at home as much as possible. 

Students will be required to pass the Class 7 Learner's Test and a vision test. At that time, they may purchase their Class 7 Learner's License. In order to obtain this license, students must present their signed health card along with their birth certificate, valid passport or treaty card for a MySGI account. 

Upon successful completion of the course, the instructor will forward the information to SGI so the student's profile can be updated. This information must be on the student's SGI profile in order to take a road test. 

Students who completed driver education before the school year, and have lost their certificate of driver education, can have their driving profile updated to show they have completed driver education by calling 306-683-8268.

Eligibility Requirements

  • Must be 15 years of age by the start date of the program.
  • Must have a MySGI account and a customer number from any SGI agency. 
  • Must have the ability to practice driving at home during the program.
