Parents and Teens are Welcome to Smart Start Driving Class

APPLE VALLEY – (VVNG.com): Parents along with their teens are welcomed to attend the Start Smart Class hosted by the Apple Valley Sheriff’s Station. The two-hour class was designed by the California Highway Patrol in order to help teen drivers Start Smart in order to provide information that can help the young driver avoid accidents causing costly damage, injury or even death. The no cost class is welcome to the teens who are accompanied by their parents and will be held on December 16th, 2014 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm. This month’s class will be held at the Town of Apple Valley Conference Center in the South Room, located at 14955 Dale Evans Parkway, Apple Valley.

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

The Victorville office of the California Highway Patrol currently offers this class to High Desert residents on a monthly basis.  In an effort to reach Apple Valley citizens and possibly accommodate more schedules, Apple Valley Sheriff’s Station has teamed up with the CHP to make this class available here in the Town of Apple Valley. Some automobile insurance companies may offer a discount for teens who attend a Start Smart class. Class seating is limited.  If you are interested in attending the class, please contact Sarah Gault at 760-240-7400 Ext 7457 to reserve a seat.
