EASTCONN offers this 8-hour Safe Driving Practices course in two 4-hour sessions. During the program, students will study and discuss safe driving tactics and the consequences of impaired driving. Please note: Students must complete the entire course in order to earn their Certificate of Completion.

This course does not provide the level of detail offered in the 38-hour course and there is no behind-the-wheel instruction.
* Parent/Guardian: For teens 16 and 17 years of age a parent/guardian is required to complete a two-hour class with the student concerning teen driving laws. This 2-hour class will help you understand the new teen driving laws. We will also discuss how you and your teen can effectively work together to create a plan for their behind-the-wheel practice. A parent/guardian must sign the student in at the start of the student's first 4 hour class per state law.

Cost: $150

*If your teen is 16 or 17 years of age, a parent or legal guardian must attend the first class per state law. Please be sure to bring a legal form of identification.
