St. Lucie County Sheriff Mascara invites licensed teen drivers to improve their defensive driving skills by taking the "Teen Driver Challenge"
The St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office is offering licensed teenage drivers a training course to improve their ability to drive defensively and safely.

"This program is called the Teen Driver Challenge," said Sheriff Ken J. Mascara. "The program, which is three years old, has graduated more than 3,000 teens throughout the State of Florida. Car crashes are the leading killer of American teenagers. That's why the Sheriffs of Florida developed the Teen Driver Challenge course."

The class will take place Thursday, Sept. 9, and Saturday, Sept. 11. The Sept. 9 session is four hours in the classroom at St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office headquarters, 4700 West Midway Road, Fort Pierce. The following Saturday consists of eight hours of hands-on training at Indian River State College's Treasure Coast Public Safety Complex, 4600 Kirby Loop Road.

Classes are free, but space is limited. Registration by Sept. 3 is required.
