A survey released in January found that parents were gaining knowledge and directions from the new educational requirement. The DMV received a federal grant to conduct a first-in-the-nation survey of parents of teen drivers partaking in the training program.According to the survey, 85 percent of parents received helpful guidance in setting boundaries and rules for their teenage drivers. In addition, 82 percent would recommend the class to other parents.
Parents attending the new two-hour required training session reported the program as overwhelmingly beneficial and said that the course has led them to adopt new safety measures with their young drivers. [Source: The Darien News]
