Parents Reducing Incidents of Driver Error (P.R.I.D.E.) is a free, national award-winning two-hour course designed to help parents and their new (or soon-to-be) teen drivers, ages 14-16, negotiate the process of teens learning to drive safely. This includes learning what they need to do during the 40 hours of supervised practice driving time required by Georgia law. This program addresses driver attitude, knowledge and behavior of both the parent and the new teen driver, but it does not include behind-the-wheel driver education.
The P.R.I.D.E. program is managed by the Georgia Traffic Injury Prevention Institute (GTIPI). GTIPI is a statewide traffic injury prevention initiative of the Family and Consumer Sciences Extension, with funding support from the Governor's Office of Highway Safety. GTIPI trains volunteers to present the P.R.I.D.E. program locally in counties across the state.
