ECSO offering Teens Ride with Pride courses

POSTED: January 9, 2014 8:48 p.m.

The Effingham County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Enforcement Unit will host two more Georgia Teens Ride with Pride courses on Jan. 18 at the Effingham County Courthouse. The first class will be from 9-11 a.m. with the second from 1-3 p.m.


This course has been in very high demand since ECSO began hosting it last year.


This is a free, two-hour course designed to help parents and their new teen drivers, ages 14-16, learn what they need to do during the 40 hours of supervised practice driving time.


The program addresses driver attitude, knowledge and behavior, rather than being a technical hands-on driver training course. Teens and parents must register to attend.


While completion of this course may reduce insurance rates, it does not count toward the required 40 hours of supervised driving practice. The Effingham County Sheriff’s Office is one of a few agencies in the state that has deputies certified as instructors to host Georgia Teens Ride with Pride course. This course is also hosted and sponsored by the University of Georgia.


Register by contacting Deputy Sheriff Mike Kendricks at 754-3449 or kendricks@effinghamcounty.org. E-mail requests are preferred. For more information on the course please visit http://extension.caes.uga.edu/gtipi/templates/classes.htm#class.


The Georgia Traffic Injury Prevention Institute is a part of the University of Georgia's Cooperative Extension Service. The Georgia Governor's Office of Highway Safety is a full partner in and is the funding source for this program Highway Safety is a full partner in and is the funding source for this program.
