Alive at 25 Classes For Free

The Alive at 25 Defensive Driving Program has received two grants for Shell Oil and Grand Futures to pay the registration fee so young drivers can take the class free of charge.

This summer there are five Alive at 25 classes scheduled in Steamboat Springs, two in July and three in August. Young drivers who would like to take this 4.5 hour class should contact the instructor at dhensen@sssd.k12.co.us or by calling 970 871 3685 for information on how to apply for the free registration. Court ordered student are not elligible for the free registration.

This highly interactive program encourages young drivers between the ages 15 to 25 to take responsibility for their driving behavior.

Our instructors use personal experience and even humor to get their point across. They use workbood 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 yound drivers 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. And committing to changing their driving behavior makes personal, legal and financial sense.

While the Aliev at 25 course is required for any Steamboat Springs High School student who wishes to park a vehicle on campus duirng the school year or apply for open campus privileges, the course is open to all young drivers, and meets the requirements for new drivers who have not taken a formal drivers education class and want to apply for their learnrs permit at age 15.5.
