New Teen Driver Education Program to Emphasize Safety at San Ramon Valley Unified Schools


San Ramon Valley Unified School District (SRVUSD), in partnership with Street Smarts and the California Highway Patrol, will implement a new system for students who wish to obtain on-campus parking permits that emphasizes traffic safety. Beginning in the 2018-2019 school year, students and their parent/guardian must attend a free two hour “CHP Start Smart” class in order to be eligible for a parking permit.


Start Smart provides an opportunity for teens and their parents/guardians to discuss the serious laws, obligations, responsibilities and family expectations that are part of driving a vehicle.  The goal is to promote and create safe driving habits around SRVUSD schools.


“The CHP Start Smart classes provide an excellent opportunity for students and their parents to engage each other in a conversation about safe driving practices. We are grateful for our community partners for coming together yet again to promote safety in the San Ramon Valley,” SRVUSD Superintendent Rick Schmitt said.


The Start Smart classes will begin in the 2017-2018 year for parking pass eligibility in the 2018-19 school year. At this class, officers from the California Highway Patrol will discuss traffic avoidance techniques, collision causing factors, driver/parent responsibilities and seatbelt usage. All SRVUSD comprehensive high schools will offer several free classes each year that are open to anyone. The class must only be taken once during a student’s high school career.


Students and their parent or guardian will need to sign-in at the event to verify attendance for their school. Students can attend any of the SRVUSD CHP Start Smart events. Reservations are required.


“Two hours can save a Life!” said CHP Public Information Officer Brandon Correia, who also teaches the class.
