The Collier County Sheriff’s Office is hosting a Teen Driver Challenge to help your kids stay safe on the road.
This course provides you with the knowledge and practical experience needed to reduce your risk of being involved in an accident. The driving skills you will learn are the same techniques used by driving professionals, including NASCAR.
The class consists of two days of training. The first day is a four hour block of instruction and the second day is an eight hour block of vehicle use.
You will be driving your own vehicle and you must be a licensed teenage driver or have a driver’s license with a 21 year old licensed driver with you.
Licensed drivers must have at least 25 hours of driving and have been licensed for at least 6 months to be accepted into the program.
And your instructor will be a Certified Law Enforcement Trainer.
Upon successful completion of this course, you will graduate with a certificate of completion. You can give the certificate to your car insurance company for a possible premium reduction.
