Free teen driving safety event open for registration

West Fargo, North Dakota – Teenagers are now welcome to register for an upcoming complimentary event focusing on safe driving skills.

The program, known as Vision Zero Driving Skills for Success, is dedicated to offering practical experience to young drivers. The event is scheduled to take place in two locations this summer: at the Alerus Center in Grand Forks on Tuesday, July 11, and at the Veterans Memorial Area in West Fargo on August 2. Each session will last for three hours, with time slots available from 9 a.m. to noon and from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

This unique, no-cost, one-day event is open to teenagers between the ages of 14 and 18, who either hold a permit or a driver’s license.

Event coordinators state that participants will have the opportunity to navigate through intricate courses, acquire parallel parking skills, and experience simulations that mimic the conditions of an impaired or distracted individual. The significance of wearing a seatbelt will also be underscored.

The Alive at 25 defensive driving course will be accessible for interested teens. This course is specifically formulated to decrease the probability of vehicular accidents among young drivers. The availability for this course is capped at the first 30 registrants per session. This course will be conducted from 8 a.m. to noon or from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., concurrent with the Driving Skills for Success sessions.

Parents are warmly invited to attend the Driving Skills for Success sessions alongside their teenagers. However, the Alive at 25 program is intended to be a classroom-style setting designed exclusively for teenagers.
