Event Description:
The Walton County Sheriff’s Office is committed to the safety of our young drivers and is offering a program called the Teen Driver Challenge, which focuses on teaching teen drivers the safety skills necessary when driving. 

It is a FREE course designed to help teens boost their driving skills and lessen the chances of being involved in a crash. The program will provide a mixture of classroom instruction and hands-on driver training.

Teens 15-19 are eligible and MUST have a valid Learner’s Permit/Florida Operators License for at least 6 months, and participants must provide their own car.
