Getting a driver’s license is an exciting and defining moment in a teen’s life but it also brings an added level of responsibility.
Posted March 14, 2014
North Dakota Farm Bureau’s safe driving class for teens, Route 1000, will help them in becoming a safe driver. The North Dakota Highway Patrol has endorsed the program.
To participate in Route 1000, the teen must be a licensed driver under the age of 18 and attend a one hour safety class with at least one parent or legal guardian. They must bring their Driver’s License and Social Security number with them. At the end of the class, they will sign an agreement promising to follow the key points covered in the short course.
After 1,000 days of safe driving with no traffic tickets and/or accidents caused by your actions, North Dakota Farm Bureau will reward you with a check for $500. Several young people in Hettinger County have already received their reward.
The next classes of Route 1000 will be held in the Ramada Grand Dakota of Dickinson on March 24 at 6:00 p.m.
Class size is usually limited to 25 participants so please register as soon as possible. There is no fee to take Route 1000 but your family must be a Farm Bureau member for you to participate and they should bring their membership card with them. If your family is not a member, you can sign up that night.
This is just one of the many benefits in being a member. For more information, contact Carson Kouba at 563-4412 or Marlene Kouba at 563-4560 on how to become a member. You can also check the website www.ndfb.org for more information and to complete an application.
