Driver Education

Driver Education

Students must be 15 years of age to enroll in Driver Education.  Students must have completed the Driver Education authorization form and have obtained an SGI customer number prior to the start of their session in order to be eligible to take the class.

Classes typically run Monday to Thurday, 3:30 to 5:30 in Room 118.  Please note all sessions are 30 hours in length as mandated by SGI and students must complete 6 hours of driving time. There is no cost.

Sessions fill up very quickly on a first come, first serve basis.  There is a limit of 30 participants per session.  Students who sign up for a session but do not attend, nor notify the office of their withdrawal, may be subject to a $500 fee posted to the student’s account and may be ineligible to register in subsequent driver education sessions. 

Luther College reserves the right to cancel or alter dates for Driver Education sessions in order to ensure there are enough students in each session.

COVID-19 Guidelines

As of June 8, 2020, Class 5 driver training is allowed to operate.  All driver training organizations must continue to take measures as outlined by the Chief Medical Health Officer to promote physical distancing where possible, and where not, use appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE).

We have attached the new drivers education health guidelines (provided by SGI) for any students who wish to take drivers ed in the school year. Any student who does not feel comfortable participating with the in-car drives may schedule them for a later date.

Prior to beginning their drives, all students will be screened using the COVID-19 Assessment Tool  and have their temperature taken. Students responding positively to screening questions or having a temperature of 38 (C) or higher will have their drive rescheduled and may be asked to call the HealthLine at 811 to have their symptoms assessed.
