ECSO offers two teen driving safety sessions

Posted: Updated:

The Effingham County Sheriff's Office Traffic Enforcement Unit will be holding two teen driving safety courses later this month.

The Georgia Teens Ride with Pride courses are scheduled for 9 a.m.-11 a.m. and 1-3 p.m. Jan. 18 at the Effingham County Courthouse. The free sessions are aimed at helping parents and their new drivers ages 14-16 to learn what they need to do during their 40 hours of supervised practice driving time. 

The program reviews issues related to driver attitude, knowledge and behavior, and is not a technical, hands-on driver training course. Registration is required for teens and parents to attend.

The sessions do not count toward the required 40 hours of supervised driving practice. The Effingham County Sheriff's Office is one of a few agencies in Georgia with deputies who are certified instructors that can host Georgia Teens Ride with Pride course. The course is also hosted and sponsored by the University of Georgia.

To register, contact Deputy Sheriff Mike Kendricks at 912.754.3449 or mkendricks@effinghamcounty.org. (e mail requests are preferred) For more information on the course please visit http://extension.caes.uga.edu/gtipi/templates/classes.htm#class.
