The Sandy Springs Police Department will be offering a Teen Driver Safety Class on February 16th.
This new Teen Driver Safety class offers an opportunity for teenagers to receive an extra layer of responsible instruction in safe driving and information on other aspects of becoming and being a safe driver. It is designed to remind young drivers of driving restrictions, offer discussion on various rules of the road (traffic control devices, speeding, school bus passing) and to educate the young driver about the dangers of distracted driving as well as to teach them how to conduct themselves during a traffic stop.
The class is designed for the under-21 driver and will provide information and offer answers to questions that help lead to improved awareness, avoidance of bad driving habits and promoting understanding of the dangers of distracted driving.
The Sandy Springs Police Department’s Traffic Unit will be conducting the two-hour training class young drivers between the ages of 15 and 21 at the Sandy Springs Police Department on February 16, 2022 from 6:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m., in the SSPD Training Room (7840 Roswell Rd #301).
