(BURBANK, September 20, 2005) — The Automobile Club of Southern California and John Burroughs High School PTA join together to host Parent Education Night on Teen Driving at John Burroughs Auditorium Wednesday, September 29 at 7 p.m.
Speakers from the Auto Club and Department of Motor Vehicles will help parents and teenagers understand all aspects of California's Graduated Driver Law, the risks of teen driving and how parents and teens can work together to reduce those risks.
"The Graduated Driver License law eases beginning drivers into traffic by limiting their exposure to driving situations proven to be particularly dangerous," said Charles Forest, manager of the Auto Club's Burbank office." Teens begin driving with certain conditions, which are gradually relaxed as drivers mature and develop greater driving skills. All teens under 18 are subject to the graduated driver system to obtain a driver permit and license."
Speakers at Parent Education Night on Teen Driving are Sherry Goodloe, senior instructor of the Auto Club Driving School and Neisha Quanvie-Wallace of the Van Nuys DMV office.
John Burroughs Auditorium is located at 1920 W. Clark Ave. in Burbank.
