Sandy Springs police are offering free driver education classes for parents and teenagers.
The two-hour course provides instruction on traffic laws and concerns such as texting or phoning while driving and is designed to help parents and teens determine what they should do during the 40 hours of supervised driving practice required to get a drivers license, police said.
The course is open to parents and teens aged 14 to 17. Called “parents reducing injury and driver error,” or P.R.I.D.E., classes will be offered Feb. 16 and March 24 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Sandy Springs police headquarters, 5995 Barfield Road.
Instruction will be provided by Sandy Springs police officers. Completion may help reduce insurance rates, depending on a driver’s insurance carrier, the department said in a release.
Registration is limited and offered on a first-come, first-served basis. To register, contact Sandy Springs traffic investigator Officer Shelly Weed at or 770-551-6939.
