St. Lucie County Sheriff Mascara announces next “Teen Driver Challenge” sign-up period is underway
Parents are invited to sign up their teenage children for the next session of the Teen Driver Challenge by July 11, according to St. Lucie County Sheriff Ken J. Mascara.

“The Teen Driver Challenge is a defensive driving program developed by a committee of the Florida Sheriffs Association,” Sheriff Mascara said. “We know that 25 to 30 percent of teen drivers will be involved in a crash during their first year of driving, and we want teen drivers to be as well prepared as possible to drive safely and defensively on our streets.”

The course involves four hours of classroom discussion and eight hours of driving on the law enforcement driving range.

Details and registration documents are available at the Teen Driver Challenge page of the St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office web site: www.stluciesheriff.com/teen_driver_challenge.php or by contacting Sgt. Andrew McIntosh at 772-462-3215.
