|The Sacramento Police Department’s Start Smart program is a driver safety
education class which targets new and future licensed teenage drivers between the age of 15 - 19 and their parents/guardians. This class is free.
Getting their driver's license opens a new world to young drivers. Suddenly, the possibility of new destinations and experiences with friends are within grasp. But a new driver lacks the experience that is sometimes needed on the road. Situations can appear in a second, sometimes too fast for a new driver to respond to. But, there are ways to avoid dangerous situations. There are ways to keep a new driver - and their passengers - safe on the road.
