Attention parents of NEW TEEN DRIVERS: the Checkpoints™ Program will be offered the second Wednesday of every month at 6:30 pm at the Jessamine Career & Technology Center. This is approximately a one-hour program that is designed to reduce teen crashes and violations.
Checkpoints™ will help you:
- Help your teen be safer when they become a new, independent driver.
- Establish and personalize a free, interactive Parent-Teen Driving Agreement to help you set safety expectations as your teen gradually increases driving complexity and responsibility.
All students who currently have an INTERMEDIATE RESTRICTED Graduated Driver License are encouraged to register. If you would like to attend or have questions, please register online at www.jessaminehealth.org/checkpoints.
*At least one parent or guardian must attend with the teen driver and jointly complete a parent-teen driving agreement to receive a discount on the student parking permit and other incentives, such as a gas gift card.
Why should you sign up?
