Prince William County Public Schools, in cooperation with the Virginia Association for Driver Education and Traffic Safety (VADETS) and with funding and support from the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles, launched Partners for Safe Teen Driving: A Community Health Initiative. This statewide program strives to create educated and responsible teen drivers who, as contributing members of our community, are committed to safe and responsible driving. Additionally, Partners for Safe Teen Driving identifies parents, educators, and businesses as key players in influencing teens to drive safely and avoid risk behind the wheel.
