Patch Staff Report
From the City of Acworth comes this information about 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.
Georgia Teens Ride with P.R.I.D.E. stands for 'Parents Reducing Injuries and Driver Error.'
This is a program that addresses driver attitude, knowledge, and behavior, rather than a technical hands-on driver training course.
While completion of this course may reduce insurance rates, it does not count toward the
required 40 hours of supervised driving practice.
The course outline looks like this:
“Teen Drivers & Motor Vehicle Crashes”
“Understanding the Licensing Process and Georgia’s Teen Driving Laws”
“Coaching Your New Driver” (for parents) OR
“Getting the Keys to the Wheels and Keeping Them” (for teenage drivers)
“Agreement to Ride with P.R.I.D.E.”
