Licensed teen drivers can take "Teen Driver Challenge" to improve their skills, St. Lucie County Sheriff Mascara announces
St. Lucie County licensed teen drivers can improve their defensive driving skills by taking the "Teen Driver Challenge" on April. 11 and 13   according to Sheriff Ken J. Mascara.

"The Sheriffs of Florida developed the Teen Driver Challenge program because the number one killer of American teen-agers is car crashes," said Sheriff Mascara. "This program is good for teen drivers and for the public at large."

The course will take place Thursday, April 11, with a classroom session 5:30 - 9:30 p.m. at the St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office, located at 4700 West Midway Rd. Fort Pierce, and a hands-on driving session Saturday, April 13, from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. at the police academy driving course on Kirby Loop Road.

Classes are free, but space is limited. Registration forms found on the St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office website or obtained at the main office (4700 West Midway Road, Fort Pierce) must be completed and turned into the Sheriff’s Office by April.  There is no registration by phone.
