Start Smart Program For Soon-To-Be Teen Drivers

Motor vehicle collisions are the leading cause of death for teens in the
United States, a dangerous situation the California Highway Patrol (CHP) addresses with its
Start Smart program.
Designed for newly licensed or soon-to-be-licensed teen drivers and their parents, Start Smart is
a two-hour driver safety class conducted throughout the state at no charge to the participants. It
incorporates innovative techniques to capture the attention of teens and parents, providing a
lasting experience. Parents and teenagers can register for a Start Smart class by contacting their local CHP office.
