The California Highway Patrol’s “Start Smart” driver safety class for teenagers and their parents will be offered in April at the Williams Area CHP Office.
The classes are designed for prospective and newly licensed drivers, aged 15 to 19 years old, who are encouraged to attend with their parents or guardians. Each session will cover collision avoidance techniques, driver responsibility, collision trends, distracted driving laws, alcohol-related driving laws, and the provisional license process.
The class will also incorporate videos and discussion, allowing participants an opportunity to ask questions from CHP officers.
The class is scheduled from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM, on Saturday, April 16, 2016. They will be held in the conference room at the Williams Area CHP Office, 100 E Street.
Class size is limited, so parents, guardians, or students can sign-up for the class by contacting Officer Shane Roach, at (530) 473-2821.
“It’s an excellent class for new, young drivers, and it’s free!” said Officer Roach.
Funding for the CHP’s Start Smart Program is made available by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
