Upcoming PRIDE class - December 12th, 2013

Posted on November 25, 2013 at 12:00 AM by Matt Boyd

Saving teenage driver’s lives one block at a time is just one goal of the Powder Springs Police Department.  We are hosting our third, 2-hour University of Georgia P.R.I.D.E. seminar absolutely free of charge,  to help Cobb County parents prepare their 14, 15, and 16-year-olds to drive.

Most parents don’t feel prepared, or may not know what they need to do, to supervise a new teen driver behind the wheel. But parental involvement is key to reducing teen crashes and fatalities.

Teens want the practice time so they can get their license, but need to know how to communicate with their nervous parents.

The course will be offered December 12, 2013 from 6:30 P.M. to 8:30 P.M. at the Powder Springs Police Department, which is located at 1114 Richard D. Sailors Pkwy, Powder Springs, GA 30127.

A teen and at least one parent or guardian must register to attend. You can obtain a registration form at the police department, Monday thru Friday, 8:00A.M. to 5:00 P.M, or you can download in PDF format at:

Please email completed registration forms to jjmatthews@cityofpowdersprings.org, or turn it in at the police department front desk. All registration forms should be submitted no later than 12:00 pm on December 6, 2013.
