“Start Smart” Driving Program for Young Adult Drivers

Nature of Incident: “Start Smart” Driving Program for Young Adult Drivers
Location: Thousand Oaks Police Station  2101 E. Olsen Road - Community Room
Date & Time: Wednesday, May 29th, 2024, from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m.
Unit(s) Responsible: Thousand Oaks Police Department - Traffic Bureau
The Thousand Oaks Police Department will be hosting a program to educate newly licensed and future licensed drivers on May 29th at the Thousand Oaks Police Station Community Room.  The Start Smart Driving Program is a cooperative effort between the California Highway Patrol, Thousand Oaks Police Department, teenage drivers, and their parents/guardians.
The Start Smart Program is designed to help young drivers understand the responsibilities associated with driving a motor vehicle.  Start Smart will show how a poor choice behind the wheel can forever alter the lives of everyone involved.  Our goal is to raise awareness and reduce the number of teen related injuries and deaths due to collisions.
To make a reservation, interested parents/students are asked to call the Thousand Oaks Police Department Traffic Bureau at (805) 494-8200.  Space is limited and there is no charge to attend the program.
We ask that each student attending only bring one parent, as needed.  To cancel, please notify our traffic office as soon as possible to help free up space for other students.
