The class, taught by Nashville police officers, will not offer behind the wheel training, but rather will focus on impaired driving, distracted driving and overall traffic safety.

Parents interested in signing up their teens for this program should contact Officer Erika Bowden via email ([email protected]) and provide the following information:

  • Teen’s name
  • Teen’s date of birth
  • Home address
  • School attended
  • Parent’s telephone number
  • Parent’s email address

Enrollment in the class is limited.  The MNPD has conducted 39 Teenage Driver Awareness sessions since the inception of the program in 2011.
