The CHP will be holding a Start Smart class on Jan. 24 at 6 p.m.
“Driving smart to stay safe” is the theme of the program, Officer Quinn Cuthbertson said. Teens and parents will learn about “the hazards of driving, distractions, DUIs” and more, he said.
The program, which lasts about three hours and takes place at 3031 Lo Hi Way in Placerville, is by appointment only, with 24 spots open — 12 for the teens, 12 for their parents. There is no cost associated with the program. Completion of the program is recognized by most insurance companies, Cuthbertson said, and can result in a discount. The CHP office can be reached at 530-622-1110 for questions or to sign up for the program.
