A free class is being offered to tenth grade students who attend with a parent, which is designed to help teens drive safe.
“It is a program designed for both parents and teens (13-18) to attend together,” said North Little Rock School District Spokeswoman Shara Brazear. “Topics include driving risks for teens, Arkansas laws that help keep teen drivers safe and why it’s important to set a good driving example.”
At the end of the class, parents and teens will be able to work together to set up a driving contract for their home.
The Teen Driving 101 class is set for Thursday, Feb. 7, from 6-8 p.m. in the North Little Rock High School’s sophomore campus cafeteria.
Space is limited to 40 students so registration is required. To register, a completed registration form must be returned to the school office. Dinner will be provided to all participants. The registration deadline is Jan. 25.
