CHP Offers FREE Teen Driver Safety Classes 

April 29, 2014

Oakland CHP Office

3601 Telegraph Avenue


The California Highway Patrol is committed to reducing the amount of teen injury and fatal collisions that occur throughout California. In partnership with the California Office of Traffic Safety, the CHP has created the "Start Smart" Program, a teen driver safety class that empowers young persons and their parents to make the right decisions behind the wheel.

"Start Smart" teaches teens and their parents about safe driving habits, and informs them of the responsibilities and
dangers associated with operating a motor vehicle. The month of April has been designated as "Distracted Driving Awareness Month" by the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS). During this month, the CHP will offer free "Start Smart" courses in several locations across the Bay Area.

To attend an event, please call (510)450-3821 to reserve your spot. We ask that at least one parent or guardian attend with their teen driver. Click here for more details <
