All new passenger vehicle drivers in Quebec begin the Quebec Road Safety Education Program by getting a Quebec learners permit or Class 5 learner license (sometimes referred to as a SAAQ learners permit). Once a new driver has built a strong base of driving knowledge at the Class 5 learner licence stage, they can then gradually move on to the probationary license Quebec makes available, and eventually qualify for a Quebec Class 5 driver's license. Unlike most of the Canadian provinces and territories, a Driver Education Course is 100% mandatory, and before you can become a Quebec learners permit holder, you have to complete a portion of the Quebec Class 5 mandatory driving course.
