ECSO to host teens ride with pride course

Posted: Updated:
EFFINGHAM CO., GA (WTOC) -

The Effingham County Sheriff's Office Traffic Enforcement Unit will be hosting another Georgia Teens Ride with Pride course on Tuesday, July 22nd 2014 at 7 p.m.  at the Effingham County Courthouse.

This course has been in very high demand since ECSO began hosting it last year. Those who wish to attend are encouraged to sign up as soon as possible as there is limited seating.

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.

This is a program that addresses driver attitude, knowledge, and behavior, rather than a technical hands-on driver training course. Teens and Parents must register to attend.

While completion of this course may reduce insurance rates, it does not count toward the required 40 hours of supervised driving practice.

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

This course is also hosted and sponsored by the University of Georgia.
