Arizona teens ages 15 to 19 who are newly licensed drivers or who hold a valid learners permit can get free training in specially equipped vehicles that simulate hazardous road conditions.
The Ford Driving Skills for Life program will host four free driver-training sessions Nov. 11-12 at Firebird International Raceway in Chandler. The program will accept 100 teen drivers per session.
During the training, teens will work with professional instructors to improve skills in four key areas: hazard recognition, vehicle handling, space management and speed management. They will drive Ford vehicles specially outfitted to simulate wet or potentially dangerous driving conditions.
Sessions will be held 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Nov. 11 and 12.
The Ford program was created in 2003 in conjunction with the Governors Highway Safety Association. Other partners include Arizona Ford Dealers and the Arizona Governor's Office of Highway Safety.
Registration is limited to 100 teen drivers per session. For more information or to sign up, call (888) 987-8765 or www.drivingskillsforlife.com.
