In an effort to prepare future drivers, the California Highway Patrol's Bakersfield office is hosting a Start Smart class Tuesday night.

According to the CHP, the class is for "current and prospective teenage drivers, and their parents or guardians."

The free, two-hour class will go over driver safety, safe driving habits, the consequences of poor choices behind the wheel and tips on how to avoid a collision.

The class will be at the Bakersfield CHP office at 9855 Compagnoni Street starting at 6 p.m.

Anyone interested in the class can call the CHP at 396-6600 to sign up.
