Young Driver Risk Reduction Course

     The Alabama Traffic Safety Center at the University of Montevallo offers a one day seminar focusing on the driving needs of recently licensed individuals.

The Young Driver Risk Reduction Course  is designed to address many of the problem areas encountered by younger, less experienced drivers. crash avoidance, skid control, defensive driving, and visual scanning techniques are a few of the topics covered. In addition, professional instructors attempt to identify and reduce improper habits which often exist in less experienced drivers. Time is divided between interactive classroom activities, driving simulation, and in-car range driving exercises.

     Since this is an advanced driving course, participants must be competent in all basic driving skills, including lane placement, steering, stopping, and decision making. This is not a basic driver education course, and is not designed to replace that training for young drivers. All course participants will receive a certificate of completion.

     The specifics of this course can be found at the Young Driver Risk Reduction Course detail web page.
