Driver’s Ed. Frequently Asked Questions

 

When can I register for Driver’s Ed?

Any student 15 or older can apply.  Classes are filled in order of birthdate, oldest to youngest.

How do I register?

Registration forms are available approximately 2 weeks prior to the class start date and can be picked up from the Balfour Collegiate Business Office from Mrs. Wilkes

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 to advisory class daily)  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?

Driver’s Ed. in-class sessions are held from 3:30pm - 5:30pm on weekdays.  The in-car sessions are held during school hours.   Under special circumstances, and depending on the Instructor, the in-car drives can be arranged sometimes on weekends or an evening..

The class schedule is posted in the Business Office.   There are typically 3 or 4 Driver's Ed sessions held each year at Balfour.

There is a summer school Driver's Ed class held every July.  Details of that class are on the Regina Public School's  website  http://www.rbe.sk.ca/students/summer-school,

Where are the Classes Held?

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

Summer School Driver's Ed classes are held at Winston Knoll (these classes are also  free (one-time-only)  if the student is enrolled in, and attending at, Regina Public Schools)

When will I do my driving practice?

Driving practice is done with family according to their schedules. This is very important and the more practice the student has with you, the better.

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