Family Driver Education

Family Driver Education is offered to school driver's education teachers to teach them how to include a "Parent's Night" for one class to meet the Oregon Department of Transportation requirements for parent participation in driver education.

In this three-hour class, a TNTT nurse and TNTT Family Educator present factual information to illustrate the consequences of both safe and unsafe driving behavior, including the long term physical, emotional, legal and financial aftermath of an accident. The class demonstrates the reasons for and importance of following traffic laws and includes updated safety and adolescent trend information, including a review of the Graduated Licensing Laws and best practice recommendations that extend beyond the law.

School Driver Education is a one-hour modification of Family Drivers Education. It is arranged through driver's education teachers and is designed for driver's education students, with or without their parents. The slide presentation is presented by a TNTT nurse and focuses on traffic safety education, including a modified graduated drivers license (GDL) law presentation.

Family Driver Education classes area presented in Multnomah, Clackamas, Columbia and Washington Counties in Oregon and, through TNTT Network members, in several other school districts throughout Oregon
