Community Education Department

Spring Lake Park Schools Community Education offers teen driver’s education in cooperation with Safeway Driving School. Safeway Driving School has been graduating teen drivers in the Twin Cities area for over 40 years and their instructors are licensed by the Minnesota Department of Public Safety.   

The State of Minnesota requires that driver’s education distance learning be conducted in a face-to-face platform, which requires that students have a video camera and audio capabilities on their devices. Safeway has chosen a secure Zoom platform to conduct the class.  Safeway’s only focus is creating safe, responsible teen drivers. Classroom and behind-the-wheel lessons emphasize defensive driving techniques tailored for the inexperienced teen driver while targeting to influence the invincible teen attitude.   

Full Course Fee of $370 is broken into three payments: 

$220 due at registration time, $150 ($75 on the first lesson and $75 on the second lesson); checks made payable to Safeway Driving School or call Safeway before behind-the-wheel to pay by credit card   

The next class sessions are: 

  • April 5-22
  • May 3-18
