Driver Education

Code of Conduct

Students are expected to adhere to this code of conduct at all times in the Driver Education Program. Failure to do so may result in expulsion from the program without a refund.

Classroom Attendance Policy

Students are required to attend a minimum of 30 hours of the 34 scheduled classroom hours, and all absences must be excused. Students/parents must inform the classroom instructor in advance of any planned absences (i.e. family vacation, school trip, etc.)

Students are expected to be on time for class, or notify the instructor about potential tardiness. If students do not provide instructors with valid reasons for being late, their tardiness may be considered as an unexcused absence.

In-Car Attendance Policy

Students are required to attend all 16 hours of Driver Education in-car lessons. Parents or guardians must provide at least 24 hours' notice to instructors to cancel or re-schedule in-car lessons. In the event of illness or emergency, if the Driver Education instructor cannot be reached, please call the Driver Education office at 204-985-7199 or toll free at 1-800-261-9928.

Discipline Policy (Classroom and Vehicle)

If a student exhibits problem behaviour in the classroom or vehicle, the instructor will discuss the problem with the student and his or her parents or guardians, and go over the behaviour expectations and discipline policies that were outlined at the start of the course. If the problem behaviour continues, the instructor will inform the student and his or her parents or guardians of possible consequences such as expulsion from the program.

School Suspensions

Any student who is suspended from his/her high school and/or is not permitted on school grounds will be subsequently suspended from Driver Education. If a suspension exceeds the number of allowed absences in the Driver Education Program the student will be expelled from the course and will not be entitled to a refund.

Criminal Code Offences

Any student who has a Criminal Code conviction or has been served with a Criminal Code offence notice related to a motor vehicle will NOT be permitted to enrol in the Driver Education Program. Any student who receives a suspension or is charged with a Criminal Code offence related to a motor vehicle while enrolled in the Driver Education Program will not be allowed to complete the program or be entitled to a refund.
