EFFINGHAM CO., GA (WTOC) -

The Effingham County Sheriff's Office Traffic Enforcement Unit will be hosting a Georgia Teens Ride with Pride course.

"This is 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, Sheriff's spokesman David Ehsanipoor said.

"It is a program that addresses driver attitude, knowledge, and behavior, rather than a technical hands-on driver training course", said Ehsanipoor.

The Effingham County Sheriff's Office is one of few agencies in the state of Georgia who have deputies that are certified instructors who can host Georgia Teens Ride with Pride course.

The completion of this course does not count toward the required 40 hours of supervised driving practice.

Georgia Teens Ride with Pride course is also hosted and sponsored by the University of Georgia.

This event will be June 27 from 7 p.m. until 9 p.m. at the Effingham County Courthouse.

Teens and parents must register to attend and can do so by contacting Deputy Sheriff Mike Kendricks at 912-754-3449 or by email mkendricks@effinghamcounty.org.
