The Metro Police Department has been taking applications for its popular free teenage driving awareness class taught by Nashville police officers.

The four-hour class has been offered to teens between the ages of 14 and 18 and has been scheduled from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday. The class will not offer behind-the-wheel training. Police said officers will focus on teaching teens about impaired driving, distracted driving and overall traffic safety.

Parents who have been interested in signing up their teens should email Officer Erika Bowden by clicking here. Be sure to provide the following information: teen's name, teen's date of birth, home address, name of school attended, and a telephone number and email address for a parent.

The class will be held at the South Precinct. Enrollment has been limited.
