** Class V Driver Training
Alberta Education has a new process to award high school credits for external learning opportunities that students take outside of school. This new process provides a more personalized, flexible approach for completing high school.

Students can complete the external course offered by a licensed driver training school (government-recognized organizations) for high school credit. Alberta Education has approved that students will earn one high school credit for completing the 15 hours of classroom instruction and 10 hours of in-vehicle instruction and passing the knowledge and practical assessments.

Students will initiate the request for the external recognition by presenting a Notice of Driver Education Course Completion to their high school. The high school will report the completion of course (EXT1010) Class 5 Driver Training 10 using PASI. (Students who previously received credits for the same learning under (LDC3363) Class V Driver Training are not eligible to earn duplicate credits using external learning recognition.)
