Not sure how many of us moms on here are in CA, but I found out about a great program through the California Highway Patrol. It is called Start Smart and it's a 2 hour class about defensive driving, what causes accidents and how to minimize risk.
After the presentation, they had the kids wear the "beer goggles" that make you feel like you are under the influence and do a field sobriety test.
Some of the videos on the reactions of objects in crashes had a real impact (no pun intended) on my 15yo son.
They also got a really nice certificate that some insurance companies will accept that will ower your insurance rates :) I told DS that the class was required by me before he can get his license.At first he was like, "Awww, do I have to?" but afterward he said it was really interesting.
To find out when there is one in your area, call your closest CHP office.
