Parents of teens who are getting ready to get their driver’s license have been taking their teens to a unique driving academy hosted by Ford for 16-years that is meant to teach teens and their parents the skills needed to be safe on the roads around the country. The driving academy is called Ford Driving Skills for Life, and it is celebrating its sixteenth anniversary by embarking on its 14-city 2019 tour aiming at delivering hands-on driving lessons to more than 6,000 teens and their parents.
For the 2019 season, the Ford teen driving program is adding some cool innovations to its training regiment, including a new sleep suit to mimic drowsy driving to teach young drivers the risks of driving while drowsy. Ford will focus this year on helping young drivers use all the new safety technology vehicles offer today. Ford has expanded the program to cover the unique circumstances of driving in rural and emerging markets.
