Yulee, Fla. – The Nassau County Sheriff’s Office concluded its 4th Teen Driver Challenge class August 4-6, 2016. Nine Nassau County teens attended the free class which consisted of classroom training covering topics like vehicle dynamics, human factors, responsibility, liability, drug & alcohol use, night driving, aggressive driving and road rage. Deputies from NCSO taught the class, which also included the students driving their own vehicle on a driving track at Yulee Middle School.
The Teen Driver Challenge program is a defensive driving program designed to help teens boost their driving skills and lessen the chances of being involved in a crash. Students are awarded a certificate of completion, which can be presented to their automobile insurance carrier for a possible reduction in insurance rates.
The Teen Driver Challenge is sponsored by the Florida Sheriff’s Association, which partners with State Farm Insurance as a corporate sponsor. Additional classes will be held throughout the year.
