Ford Driving Skills for Life, Teen Driver Training

07/22/2017 - 7:30am - 12:00pm

Ford Motor Company is bringing their Driving Skills for Life program to the New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon on SATURDAY & SUNDAY, JULY 22 & 23. We’ll host two sessions - one from 7:30am - noon and one from 1pm - 5:30pm on both days. 


The hands-on driving program is taught by actual race car drivers. Teens will learn skills that go beyond driver’s ed. Skills include how to handle a spin out (in a Mustang, no less) as well as speed management, reaction time etc. They’ll even have to go through a closed course while being utterly distracted by texts and an instructor, as well as donning what we call “impairment” glasses. It’s a real eye opener for many. With vehicle crashes being the #1 killer of teens throughout the country, we are passionate about giving teens the skills they need behind the wheel, and believe that we’ve found a fun way to do just that. 


In order to participate students will need a valid driver’s license, and they (along with their parent or guardian) will need to sign a waiver - all of which can be done via the registration link. Space is limited so pre-registration is a must.
