Richfield Community Education is pleased to offer this parent awareness, safety class. The goal is to reduce teen driver crashes, injuries and deaths by increasing parent awareness of teen safety issues and encouraging parental involvement to developing a safer teen driver. Students are encouraged to attend this class with parent.The class will:
Increase parent and youth awareness of the most common risks for teen drivers (it may not be what you think!) and Minnesota’s teen driver laws.
Increase parental understanding of the strong influence they have on their teen’s driving behavior.
Provide information and tools parents can use to help support their teen in driving safely.
Additional benefit: Since 2015, every driver under the age of 18 who completes behind-the-wheel instruction and is testing for a driver’s license must submit a parent/guardian driving log. The driving log must show that their teen has completed at least 50 hours (3000 minutes) of supervised driving, 15 (900 minutes) of which are nighttime hours. Completing this Minnesota approved parent safety class will reduce the driving log requirement by 10 hours.
