The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office will offer a free, two-day teen driving challenge on May 11-12.
The program, titled the “Teen Driving Challenge” (TDC), will consist of 4 hours of classroom work and 8 hours of hands-on instruction on a driving course.TDC was developed to combat the high crash rate of teen drivers on Florida’s highways. A portion of the program will deal with distracted driving, specifically texting and cellphone use behind the wheel.
TDC will be presented to students aged 16-19 who are licensed to drive and who have a vehicle available for the driving course portion. Participants must also provide proof of insurance, along with a signed release form.
For more information, contact Deputy Ronnie Gill at the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office.
Our Treasure Coast auto accident attorneys urge all Florida drivers, including newly licensed teen drivers, to stay focused while driving.
