For Distance Learning classes, State rules require each student to have an audio and video connection to the class. Accordingly, students must attend the teleconference classes on a laptop, tablet or desktop computer with a web camera and microphone. Cell phones are not appropriate devices for participating in class.
Please Note. Printing will be required for a distance learning class. In-class handouts (quizzes, worksheets) and the MN Driver's Manual will be emailed as pdf documents prior to class. The handouts should be printed and available to the student for use during class. The manual should also be printed and available during class. The manual can be printed single-sided, two-on-a-page requiring 52 pages or double-sided, two-on-a-page requiring 26 pages.

Not a problem. Safeway has designed our classroom program around busy kids. Lessons
can be taken in any order, though we do recommend Lesson #10 be taken at or near
the end. If you miss a lesson, you are responsible for making up that exact lesson
number. All our calendars are online. You can attend any Safeway classroom or any
community education program to make up a missed lesson with one proviso: if the
class is marked "Class Full" on our web site, please do not attend that class because
there might not be room for you.
There is no need to sign up for a make-up lesson; just arrive for the missed lesson
and sign-in. Our instructors always welcome new students for a make-up class. And
all our instructors can record your attendance in our database and issue a Blue
Card when all the lessons are completed.
If you expect to come late or need to leave early, please understand Safeway follows
the State's requirements very closely. We cannot allow students into the classroom
more than five minutes late. You cannot leave early from a class. If you are unable
to attend the entire class, you should plan to make up the missed lesson on another
day when you can attend the entire class.
And remember, the State does not allow more than one three-hour lesson per day.
Students can register for individual missed classroom lessons by logging into their student account. Click the
button in the top right corner of our home page and enter your last name, date of birth and home zip code.
More recent students will also need to enter a PIN. Go to the Classroom Lessons tab and click
. We are also happy to help over the phone by calling our office during business hours. Please note, students must miss
the lesson before they can register for a make-up lesson. Make-up lessons cannot be arranged in advance.
