Apple Valley Set to Start Smart Class

sheriffApple Valley Sheriff’s Station is now making Start Smart classes available in the Town of Apple Valley. The next class will be held April 10th, 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. The conference center can be accessed through the same parking lot as the Town Library and is the building northwest of Town Hall.

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

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 is teaming 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 Karen Hunt at the number below to reserve a seat.
