The Newton County Sheriff's Office will be hosting P.R.I.D.E. (Parents Reducing Injuries and Driver Error) courses from 6-8 p.m. on Jan. 31; 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Feb. 11; and 6-8 p.m. Feb. 23. All P.R.I.D.E. courses will be held at the NCSO Training Room, located at 15151 Alcovy-Jersey Road.

P.R.I.D.E. is a free two-hour course that educates parents and their teen drivers about TADRA (Teenage & Adult Driver Responsibility Act), Joshua's Law and Driver's Education in Georgia. Also, the Georgia Teens Ride with P.R.I.D.E. classes will complement driver education programs by helping parents and guardians become more aware of their own driving behaviors, teaching parents and guardians how to help their teens become safe drivers, helping parents, guardians and teens learn what they need to do during the supervised practice driving time and altering attitudes and driving behaviors of novice teen drivers.

Parents, help your teen to be a safe driver and educate yourself by registering for this free two-hour parent/teen course. This course is recommended for teens 14 and older. To attend this course, the registered teen is not required to have a learner's permit or driver's license. However, a teen and at least one parent or guardian must register and attend this parent/teen course.
