Parents Reducing Incidents of Driver Error is a free, two-hour course designed to help parents and their new teen drivers ages 14-16 learn what they need to do during the 40 hours of supervised practice driving time required by Georgia law.

The class will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Monday at Gainesville State College. This program addresses driver attitude, knowledge and behavior of both the parent and new teen driver. A parent or guardian is required to attend with each teen driver.

Preregistration by phone is required. To preregister, call 770-535-8290 no later than Friday and ask for Debbie Wilburn or Nancy Mizer.

The class is sponsored by Hall County Extension, Gainesville State College, Georgia State Patrol and the Georgia Traffic Injury Prevention Institute, which is a program sponsored by University of Georgia Cooperative Extension, along with the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety and the Gainesville/Hall County Safe Kids Coalition.
