As a teacher, you are responsible for the safety and well-being of your students and staff.
You must be able to teach safely and effectively.
It is important that you know your students well enough to teach them to drive safely, to be safe drivers, to use your vehicle safely, and to follow the rules of the road.
When you are driving, you must follow all traffic laws.
These rules apply both in the highway and in the road itself.
Driving is dangerous, and your safety depends on your driving ability and the vehicle you are in.
To ensure you have the skills to be a safe driver, you should take the following classes: Driving lessons: Driving school: Advanced Driving School (ADTS) can teach you to drive in the following driving scenarios: Driving with a child under 12 years old and at least one parent and one other adult driving the child (adults must be licensed drivers) Driving with two adults, one driving the other, or one parent, one other driving the children (admins must be driving instructors and be licensed to drive) Driving on a highway with two or more lanes, one lane for each vehicle in a truck, bus, or van, or with a vehicle that has been declared unsafe for public use (vehicles that are dangerous to pedestrians or to cyclists must be removed to a designated safe place) Driving at speeds up to 40 km/h, with the exception of when the vehicle is in a commercial vehicle or an articulated vehicle, and when the driver of the vehicle can see the safety warning device.
When a vehicle has been driven in a residential neighbourhood, the driver must be wearing a helmet.
You can take a course in driving at night, or you can take one that covers all aspects of driving, including safety on the road and the responsibilities of drivers, pedestrians, cyclists, and the environment.

You are required to use a hand-held radio (CD player) or radio-controlled vehicle.
You need to have a learner’s permit.
You should be able and willing to drive your vehicle at night or in dim light conditions.
If your car has been in the driveway or parked at the end of a driveway, you will need to make the following modifications to the vehicle: Remove the rear wheel from the vehicle, put the vehicle in park, and place it in the designated lane or parking space.

Make sure that your child is wearing a seat belt and is not riding in the passenger seat.
If a person is riding in your passenger seat, take the child to a safe place.
If the child is riding on a motorcycle, take that motorcycle to a motorcycle safety school.
When using your motorcycle, you have to take the motorcycle to an authorized motorcycle safety course.
If someone is riding a motorcycle that is not equipped with a seat, the person must wear a seatbelt and wear a helmet and a red light.
If using a motorcycle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, you can be charged with reckless driving and face fines.
