Parents Reducing Incidents of Driver Error (PRIDE) is a program of the University of Georgia Traffic Injury Prevention Institute. Go to their website to find a class. In Georgia, motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for teens. These classes target parents and their teenage drivers who are either just beginning to drive or are preparing for a learner’s permit. This is not a hands-on, mechanical how-to course, but a class that addresses driving attitude and behavior of teenagers ages 14-16. This course will help parents become more aware of their own driving behaviors, teach parents how to help their teenagers become safe drivers, help parents and teenagers learn what they need to do during the supervised practice driving time required to obtain a license, and alter attitudes and driving behaviors of novice teenage drivers.
The Coweta County Sheriff’s Office no longer offers this program.
