First Impact is a 90 – minute evidence-based traffic safety program that educates parents about Missouri’s GDL law.

Importance of being a positive role model

First Impact provides the tools parents need to monitor, coach and support their new teen driver. First Impact features a video and discussion to promote the importance of parents and teens working together to reduce teen crashes, injuries and fatalities.

Ensuring parents understand the risks and responsibilities associated with driving is essential in preventing teen driving tragedies.

The program is delivered by Law Enforcement Speakers and Facilitators who coach parents by presenting key facts and proven strategies to help parents lower their teens’ crash risk by utilizing the Missouri GDL law.

The statewide program is available free of charge.
