Parking Permit Class Requirement

Students who wish to purchase a parking pass must take a CHP Start Smart driver safety class held at an SRVUSD high school. The student must attend the class with a parent or gaurdian.

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

SRVUSD has implemented a new system for students who wish to obtain on-campus parking permits that emphasizes traffic safety. Beginning in the 2018-2019 school year, the SRVUSD in partnership with Street Smarts and the California Highway Patrol (CHP)  will sponsor free two hour CHP Start Smart classes. Students and their parent/guardian must attend one free two hour CHP Start Smart class in order to be eligible for a parking permit at all SRVUSD High Schools.  


The Start Smart presentations provide 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 Start Smart presentations will start in August for parking pass eligibility in the 2018/19 and 2019/20 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 2-3 free classes each year that are open to anyone. The class must only be taken once during a student’s high school career and must be taken at a SRVUSD High School location.


Class Information

Classes will continue in 2018-2019 for parking pass eligibility in the 2018-19 school year and beyond. Ten classes will be offered for the 2018-2019 school year at all of the SRVUSD high schools. Review your schedules and sign up early to confirm your space. No additional classes will be added once the dates and locations are confirmed.


Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Check-in by 6:45 p.m. Doors close at 7 p.m. No late arrivals accepted, and your space is subject to be released to others at 7 p.m. If the class if full, you are welcome to list for “stand-by,” at the venue that evening for available space. However, admission is not guaranteed.


AT&T’s Texting and Driving Simulator will be available at some locations.


At least one parent must attend with their teen. (Note: The presentation contains graphic “accident” images, which are unsuitable for children under 15 years old.)


IMPORTANT: Students must attend a class at an SRVUSD school to be eligible to apply for a student parking permit.
