Police accepting applications for free teen-driving class

Friday, June 17, 2016, Vol. 40, No. 25

NASHVILLE (AP) — The Metro Police Department is now taking applications for its popular free teenage driving awareness class taught by Nashville police officers.

The four-hour class is offered to teens between the ages of 14 and 18 and is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday. The class will not offer behind-the-wheel training. Police say officers will focus on teaching teens about impaired driving, distracted driving and overall traffic safety.

Parents who are interested in signing up their teens should email Officer Erika Bowden at Erika.Bowden@nashville.gov and provide the following information: teen's name, teen's date of birth, home address, name of school attended and a telephone number and email address for a parent.

The class will be held at the South Precinct. Enrollment is limited.
