Host Regional Awareness Event

Nashville, Tennessee, October 7, 2018 – The award winning Ford Driving Skills for Life program visited the Nashville Area to take on the leading cause of death in the United States for teen drivers – vehicle crashes due to driver inexperience and poor decision making. More than 200 Nashville Area teen drivers and their families got hands-on training on the skills they need to stay safe behind the wheel. A signature program of the Ford Motor Company Fund, Ford Driving Skills for Life has provided free driver training to more than one million newly licensed drivers in 50 states and 40 countries. Ford has committed more than $50 million to this award-winning program, now in its 15th year. The program captures teen and parent interest with free, hands-on driving courses that pair new drivers with professional instructors for training on vehicle handling, speed and space management, and impaired and distracted driving. Students gain experience and learn by a variety of hands-on driving methods with professional instructors who teach key skill sets that boost young drivers' confidence and knowledge.
