Any parent who has turned over their car keys to their teenager knows the feeling; a mixture of trust and hope with a dash of worry that their young driver will be able to safely navigate all conditions and roads and that lay before them.
Mopar, with support from Dodge and FCA North America, is hosting a program called Mopar Road Ready Powered by Dodge. The course is designed to teach safe and defensive driving techniques to teens between the ages of 15 and 19 with a learner’s permit or driver’s license and at least 30 hours of driving experience.
The program incorporates classroom education and hands-on training for the teen and a companion experience for a parent or adult guardian who will also actively take part. Sessions provide a brief classroom review of core driving topics and behind-the-wheel training with on-track course sessions including accident avoidance (slalom), distraction, panic stop, wheel drop and wet skid pad.
The next confirmed event will be held September 12th and 13th at Mopar Headquarters in Center Line, Michigan with additional event dates and locations to be announced in the near future. Classes are free of charge to registered teens and their parents or guardians but require a processing fee and a $99 refundable registration deposit which will be returned after the session. Parents can register at Mopar.com/Road-Ready/Detroit.
Preparing new drivers with the skills they need help keep everyone safe – no matter what city they’re driving in.
