Driver’s Ed. Frequently Asked Questions

 

When can I register for Driver’s Ed?

Any Balfour student 15yrs or older by the beginning of the Driver's Ed class. with good class attendance,  can apply.  Classes are filled in order of birthdate, oldest to youngest.

How do I register?

Application forms are available from the Balfour Collegiate Business Office from Mrs. Wilkes.  Completed application forms, signed by parent/guardian, must be returned to our Business Office.

Please Note*  The first attempt at the Drivers Education course offered through the school  is free.  Students must maintain good attendance at Balfour and also attend each Driver's Ed class after school and all the in-car driving hours to be successful.  If students are unsuccessful in completing the drivers education course offered through the school system, they will have to pay a fee to hire a private Instructor to take it additional times.

How will I know the details of my class?

Class Details are posted in our Student Announcements** (Teacher reads these to advisory class every morning)  and also posted in the Business Office and our school bulletin board.

There is a link to the Daily Balfour Student Announcements** on this web site.

 When are the classes held?

A new class will be starting on April 30th and running to May 15 inclusive, M-F  3:30-6:00pm in room 109.   Applications are available in our Business Office now.

The in-car sessions will be held during school hours after the 30-hour in-Class time is completed and students pass the exams.

The Class schedule and the Drive schedule are posted in the Business Office (unless the Instructor prefers to contact the students directly for their drives).  

There are typically 4 Driver's Ed sessions held each year at Balfour.  After the Class presently running there won't be another class until the new year.

Where are the Classes Held?

Our Driver's Ed. classes are held right here at Balfour Collegiate 

Summer School Driver's Ed classes in 2018 will be held at Scott Collegiate (these classes are also free if the student is enrolled in, and has good attendance in their classes at  Regina Public Schools)

When will I do my driving practice?

Driving practice is done with family according to your family's schedule. This is very important and the more practice the student has with you, the better.

The in-car Driving part of the Driver's Ed' Class will be planned during regular Balfour class time, with some exceptions. Student is responsible to complete any homework from classes missed.
