New Site Educates Teens on Driver Safety, Saving Money and Getting into College

Sacramento — A new website designed to show young drivers and their parents motoring tips, suggestions, and resources has been launched by the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). The new site, called Let's Get it Started has been developed specifically with young drivers in mind.

The webpage explains how to apply for a driver license, the cost, and specific instructions for young drivers. Teens can find out how to make an appointment, find a field office and calculate fees to register their vehicle.

And, parents can learn about their roles and responsibilities including useful information to help young drivers stay safe on the road.

In addition to driving safety, DMV also provides helpful tips and resources on low cost insurance, how to save gas, preparing for college and getting a job.
