Another successful Teen Driver Challenge is in the books for the Walton County Sheriff’s Office, and this was our biggest group yet!

Twelve students from all over Walton County attended the two day course which began Friday, December 2 at Freeport High School. “The kids had a blast,” said David Talley, School Resource Deputy and organizer of the Teen Driver Challenge for WCSO. “They showed up excited each day and were ready to learn new skills that will help keep them safe in the future.”

The Teen Driver Challenge course, which is offered at no cost to students, provides teenagers with the knowledge and hands-on experiences needed to reduce the chances of being involved in a crash.  The Teen Driver Challenge is a defensive driving program that covers:

  • Vehicle Dynamics
  • Human Factors
  • Responsibility and Liability
  • Effects of Drugs and Alcohol
  • Night Driving
  • Aggressive Driving

This TDC is backed by the Florida Sheriff’s Association (FSA) and supported by the Sheriff.
