The South Metro Fire Rescue (SMFR) Safety Foundation is offering a five-hour class that allows teens to apply for their driving permit. To participate, your teen must be at least 15 1/2 years old. This class includes information in all areas of the learn-to-drive process and computerized driving simulations with a focus on safety.
Parents are asked to attend the first 90 minutes of the class along with their student. Parents and teens will be provided information on the permit process and driving safety issues common to new teen drivers.
Class dates start on May 7 (with more available online) and classes are held on Sundays from noon to 5 p.m. The cost is $70 and space is limited. For additional information or to register, visit www.southmetrofoundation.org/135/Driver-Awareness-Program.
