Teen driver program back for summer

-A A +A

 A Teen Driver Improvement Program is being offered to all Levy County students who have a  license or learners permit or who are about to get their learners permit by the Levy County Sheriff’s Office, Community Relations Division.

The program is free and lasts four hours. It consists of classroom instruction, videos, PowerPoint presentations and hands-on time during which the students will drive golf carts through a course to learn first-hand the dangers of their choices they make while driving. 

There is a graphic presentation that will show students the human consequences of their driving choices. Parent waivers are required due to the graphic nature of the presentation. Waivers are available online at www.levyso.com, by clicking the Teen Driver Improvement icon on left side of the screen.

All students will be required to pre-register by calling Lt. Sean Mullins or Sgt. Max Long at 352-486-5111, ext. 278 or via e-mail at smullins@levyso.com or mlong@levyso.com.
