Florida dealership offers free driving classes for area teens

A Florida dealership is offering safe driving classes for teens, paid for by the dealership and offered to any teen with driving experience and a Florida driverês license or learnerês permit.

Gary Yeomans Ford Lincoln in Daytona Beach started offering the classes three years ago, reports Edmunds.com. The classes of 25 young people are offered twice a year. They consist of a short classroom session and several hours of hands-on driving with an instructor, using the dealershipês car and lot.

Instruction includes high-speed lane changes, high-speed maneuvers, hard braking and accident avoidance tips. An added attraction for parents: The dealership website says –Students will learn first-hand just how difficult it is to text and drive by using the 2014 Mustang Text-Free Zone Simulator.”
