St. Lucie County licensed teen drivers can improve their defensive driving skills by taking the "Teen Driver Challenge" on Jan. 24 and 26, according to Sheriff Ken J. Mascara.

"The leading killer of American teens is car crashes, and that's why the Sheriffs of Florida developed the Teen Driver Challenge," said Sheriff Mascara. "The Teen Driver Challenge will help teens drive safely and defensively.

The course will take place Thursday, Jan. 24, with a classroom session from 5:30 - 9:30 p.m. at the northern end of Coolidge Road, just west of the Turnpike, and a hands-on driving session Saturday, Jan. 26, from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. at the police academy driving course on Kirby Loop Road.
