A parent meeting is held during each 30 Hour Classroom session. Please attend this parent meeting to receive valuable materials to guide you and your student during this process. No students allowed, only parents. Topics will include:
- Graduated driver licensing
- Safety risks associated with novice drivers
- Potential influence of adults on driving behavior of novice drivers
- Additional resources
There is an optional Supplemental Parent class that follows the parent meeting. We suggest you attend. This short class will result in lowering your student's supervised driving log from 50 to 40 hours (and 15 of those to be nighttime hours). This meeting covers important information and tips about student drivers. After completion, a certificate will be emailed to you. Print and bring this certificate with you during your students license/road test.
