Friday, June 12, 2020

The New Lenox Safe Communities America Coalition has developed a program for parents of new teen drivers. The event will take place via Zoom video-conference on Thursday, June 25th from 7:00pm to 8:00pm.

The program will feature guest speakers from the Illinois Secretary of State’s Office, Lincoln-Way Community High School District 210 Driver’s Education Department, Top Driver Driving School, the New Lenox Police Department, and Country Financial.

The program will cover the following:
1. Illinois’ Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL) Program – history, phases & sanctions.
2. Lincoln-Way Driver Education curriculum – classroom & behind-the-wheel.
3. Police officer perspective on how GDL is enforced in New Lenox.
4. Guidance for parents including delivering 50 hours of behind-the-wheel instruction.
5. Auto Insurance considerations having a teen driver in the house.

The GDL Parent-Teen Driving Guide created by the Illinois Secretary of State’s Office will be available as a PDF and a “Student Driver” magnetic car sign will be available compliments of our event coordinator, Rocky Dellamano from Country Financial.
