Where can students go for registration information?

Once Driver Education courses are finalized, they are published on the Driver Education Course Finder on the Manitoba Public Insurance website (http://apps.mpi.mb.ca/DL/CourseFinder.aspx)

When does registration for the upcoming term begin?

Registration for the Winter/Spring 2019 term (includes courses with a start date between January 1 and June 30) will be available at the start of business on November 19, 2018. Courses will be available on Course Finder for students and parents to view only on November 15, 2018.

There will be no summer courses offered in July as they traditionally have been in the past. Instead, in 2019 a pilot of the new program will be offered and will begin in May.

If a course at your school is at risk of the being cancelled due to low enrollment (or you typically have lower enrollment at your school), we would appreciate it if you could advertise the upcoming course with students and parents. Please contact the DE office, at any time, with questions about how we can work together to help keep the course running at your school/in your area.

How does reciprocity work?

Students are grouped in one of two registration phases based on their reciprocity (determined by which students a host school allows into their courses):

  • Primary (usually reserved for students attending the host school) – Students in this group may register for courses as soon as registration is available. For the upcoming term, primary registration runs from November 19, 2018 to December 9, 2018.
  • Secondary (open to students from other schools or divisions as determined by the host school) – Students in this group may register after the course has been available to the primary group. For the upcoming term, secondary registration runs from December 10, 2018 to the course start date.
