  • Driver's Education - Summer

    Safeway has been teaching teens to drive in the Metro Area for over 45 years. Last year, Safeway instructed over 8,000 teen drivers. Safeway’s only focus is creating safe, responsible teen drivers. Its customized teen program emphasizes defensive driving through classroom and behind-the-wheel training. All of Safeway’s instructors are licensed by the Minnesota Department of Public Safety, having met the State’s background checks and testing requirements. Classroom Instruction: Students are required to take 30 hours of classroom instruction. Students can start classes at age 14½, obtain their permit at age 15, and license at age 16. The enhanced classroom curriculum includes study guides, lecture with PowerPoint, worksheets, videos and interactive computer software. These classes prepare students for the Minnesota Permit Exam and more importantly, focus on critical behavior and attitude issues common to teen drivers. If a student needs to miss a lesson, they can make up that exact lesson at any of the upcoming Hopkins sessions or at one of Safeway’s fixed locations. Behind-the-Wheel Instruction: Students must complete six hours of driving lessons with a Safeway instructor before taking the Minnesota Road Exam. Safeway’s lessons are divided into three, two-hour lessons. The lessons are one-on-one instruction with a responsible, professional Safeway driving instructor. Students can be picked up from and dropped off at home, school or work. Safeway offers convenient Internet behind-the-wheel scheduling. The lessons are given on actual city streets, highways and freeways. It is recommended that students take their first lesson 6-8 weeks after receiving their permit. Lessons should be at least 30 days apart allowing for practice with parents in between lessons. Parent Involvement: Students will bring home a parent letter with important information.  Safeway offers in-person and online parent classes to explain its program, describe parental responsibilities and answer any questions.  Parents are their child's primary driving instructor so it is critical to practice regularly.  The State requires 50 hours of practice with 15 hours at night, to be detailed on a driving log. For more information about Safeway’s program or to schedule a behind-the-wheel lesson, please call 952-933-1919 or visit www.safewaydrivingschool.com. There is an optional payment plan which requires $249.00 at registration and two additional payments of $75.00, paid directly to Safeway, at the first two behind-the-wheel instructions.
