Parents,

 

In an effort to stay safe and healthy during the coronavirus pandemic, many of us are isolated at home. As your daily routines have been disrupted, perhaps you and your teen can utilize this time to discuss safe driving behavior. Take a look at our online resource called The Academy for free virtual driver training.

 

World class instructors will walk you through lifesaving advanced safe driving skills. You will test your knowledge with short quizzes and receive a certificate of completion. 

 

The Academy has 5 learning units that include a total of 21 videos. Each of them less than 6 minutes long.

 

Speed Management: 3 videos / Space Management: 6 videos 

Vehicle Handling: 2 videos / Hazard Recognition: 7 videos 

Driving Position: 3 videos  

 

By spending only 20 minutes a day, in one week you and your teen will complete this training course. You can also present the certificate of completion to your insurance company for rate reduction consideration.

 

Your safety and well-being are our number one priority, and not just when you’re on the road. As you hunker down with family, we hope that these resources can provide a time to bond and strengthen your relationship with your teen, while also providing the knowledge of important safe driving skills.

 

Please, don’t hesitate to reach out to us if you have a question. 

 

Stay healthy and drive safe.

 

Sincerely, 

The Ford Driving Skills for Life team
