Apple Valley Sheriff’s Station, in collaboration with the California Highway Patrol, is now making Start Smart classes available in the Town of Apple Valley. The first class will be held January 8th, 2014 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm at the Town of Apple Valley Conference Center located at 14975 Dale Evans Pkwy., Apple Valley.

This is a unique two-hour class designed by the California Highway Patrol to help your teen driver Start Smart.  The class is made available to teens, accompanied by a parent, at no cost.  The class will discuss important issues such as:

  •           Tips to avoid collisions
  •           Safe driving habits
  •           Dynamics of a collision
  •           Consequences of a poor choice behind the wheel of a vehicle
  •           Testimonies of people tragically impacted by incidents involving teen drivers
  •           Parental roles and responsibilities
  •           Legal ramifications and civil liabilities affecting teen drivers and their parents
