Youthful Driver Program
Is someone you love learning to drive? The Fairfax County Police Department Youthful Driver Program can help. Police instructors will help your “young driver”:
- Learn what it means to be an “inexperienced” driver
- Identify the risks and realities of being teen driver
- How to ignore peer pressure behind the wheel
Spend a Saturday learning the rules and risks of the road. Dangers of the road aren’t confined to teenagers; everyone on the road will be safer once they learn:
- How to recover from skidding on a wet roadway
- How to adjust your driving when road surfaces vary- hard surface to soft shoulders
- How to judge distance while driving at highway speeds
The Youthful Driver Program is a one day, hands-on course, running one Saturday each month from 7 a.m. until 4 p.m.
