Safeway's Parent Class is available in both a distance learning format and online. The class is not mandatory but it presents helpful information to parents. The distance learning class qualifies the student for reduced practice hours.
The topics covered in the Parent Class include:

  • Minnesota’s Graduated Driver’s Licensing system
  • Safeway’s classroom training and terminology
  • Safeway’s behind-the-wheel program
  • Advice for driving with your new student driver
  • New traffic laws and driving maneuvers

Our distance learning Parent Class is conducted via a secure Zoom meeting, allowing parents to attend from home. The class lasts about 90 minutes. State rules require parents to have an audio and video connection to the class. Accordingly, parents must attend the teleconference class on a laptop, tablet or desktop computer with a web camera and microphone. A cell phone is not an appropriate device for attending the class. To register, please view any classroom calendar on our web site and click the <Sign Up> button for the Parent Class you wish to attend.

Our online class can be viewed by parents of registered students by logging in to the student account in the upper right corner of our home page. Go to the Classroom Lessons tab and then click the video for the topic you wish to view. Each of the topics cited above is covered in a separate video. The first video explaining Minnesota’s Graduated Driver’s Licensing system is available to the right.

If you cannot attend or view our Parent Class, please make sure you read the Parent Letter you were sent with your Service Agreement. We also ask you to review the Learn More and For Parents tabs above.


PLEASE NOTE

PARENT CLASS INCENTIVE:  The 50-hour practice driving requirement can be reduced to 40 hours if the parent or guardian attends a distance learning Parent Class and receives a completion certificate. Only parents who attend Safeway’s distance learning Parent Class will receive a completion certificate.  While helpful and informative, viewing the online videos does not qualify for a completion certificate.
