Alive at 25 Course Description

This highly interactive four-hour program encourages young drivers between the ages of 16 and 24 (age group most likely to be involved in fatal collisions) to take responsibility for their driving behavior and teaches young drivers how to take control of situations by taking responsibility for their own driving behavior. Skill practices and on-the-spot defensive driving techniques help change bravado to confidence.

Alive at 25 instructors use personal examples and even humor to get their point across. They use workbook exercises, interactive media segments, group discussions, role-playing, and short lectures to help young drivers develop convictions and strategies that will keep them safer on the road.

Alive at 25 teaches young adults that:

  • People in their age group are more likely to be hurt or killed in a vehicle crash.
  • Inexperience, distractions, and peer pressure cause unique driving hazards.
  • Speeding, alcohol, and "party drugs" greatly increase their risk of injury or death.
  • As a driver or passenger, they can greatly reduce their risk by taking control.
  • Committing to changing their driving behavior makes personal, legal and financial sense.
