Start Smart

The CHP's FREE Start Smart program is a driver safety education class which targets new and future licensed teenage drivers between the ages of 15 -19 and their parents/guardians. The classes are used to promote traffic safety to both parents and teens. We encourage both parent/caregivers and teens to attend the class. The Start Smart class will cover collision avoidance techniques, driver responsibility, collision trends, distracted driving laws, alcohol related driving laws and the provisional license process. The program also offers an opportunity for new drivers and parents/guardians to ask CHP Officers clarifying questions. The class incorporates videos and classroom discussion.
