By the end of May, student packages will be sent to schools for students registered in Driver Ed Summer Session; other arrangements will be made for home-schooled students. At that time, students will be notified when the packages arrive and are available for pick up. Students who do not pick up their package at that time will forfeit their spots and no longer be registered in Driver Ed Summer Session.
The student package contains "The Driver's Handbook", class schedule, and other important information. Students must study "The Driver's Handbook" in preparation for the Class 7 learner's exam to be administered by the instructor at the beginning of Driver Ed Summer Session. Following this exam, the provincial learner's license may be purchased from SGI. Please note that SGI requires two pieces of identification: 1) Health Services Card, and 2) birth certificate or passport [no photocopies].
