Teen Driver Challenge

With every privilege comes great responsibility.
Driving a vehicle may seem easy and fun, but training and fundamental skills acquired from the Teen Driver Challenge can last a lifetime. 

Parents, help your teens become better and safer drivers through our FREE 8-hour Teen Driver Challenge. This is a hands-on course designed to give teens the experience they need to drive safely under the supervision and training of the Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s Office staff.
This course is offered to students with a valid driver’s license or valid permit. The student drivers will need to bring their automobile to the driving range for class. Parents will not be allowed to stay during training.

Upon completion of the course, drivers will receive a certificate to present to their auto insurance company for potential policy discounts.

The day starts promptly at 8 a.m. and continues until 4 p.m. Lunch will be provided as no students will be allowed to leave the premises during this training.

Age Requirements: 15 – 19 years of age

Drivers License Requirements: Valid Permit or Drivers License
