Virginia state law requires parents/guardians and their student drivers to attend a 90-minute traffic safety program as part of the in-classroom portion of the driver education curriculum.

This program requirement must be met before a student can receive a Driver Education Certificate of Completion card (DEC-District 8 card). The session informs parents and students about state driving laws, covers techniques for coaching teens, empowers parents to assist their children in managing high-risk driving environments in the community and offers other essential safety information.

This presentation will be offered multiple times throughout the school year at each high school. Students and their parent/guardian should plan to attend this mandatory presentation at their school but may also attend at another high school.

Doors will close promptly at the beginning of the presentation. Late arrivals will not be permitted to participate. So arrive early; spaces fill up fast. Sessions at the end of the school year fill up the fastest. Most weekday sessions will begin at 7:00 p. m. unless otherwise noted. View 2019-20 dates for the student/parent presentations.
