PARENT’S SUPPLEMENTAL COURSE FOR STUDENTS ENROLLED IN DRIVER’S EDUCATION
If you are the “primary driving supervisor” who will supervise a teen driver for the majority of their required driving hours, you will benefit from this 90 minute class. Effective January 1, 2016, every driver under the age of 18 who completes behind the wheel instruction and is testing for a provisional driver’s license must submit a driving log. Parent/guardians have two options regarding the supervised driving log: complete this supplemental parent class and then submit a supervised driving log showing their teen has completed at least 40 hours (2,400 minutes) of supervised driving, 15 (900 minutes) of which are nighttime hours; or if the parent/guardian chooses to not complete this supplemental parent class, the driving log must show that their teen has completed at least 50 hours (3,000 minutes) of supervised driving, 15 (900 minutes) of which are nighttime hours. This course will cover the graduated driving license law information, safety risks for teen drivers, potential adult influence on teen driving behavior, and additional resources. Class dates and information will be announced during the classroom portion of Driver’s Ed.
