Levy County Teen Driver Improvement Program

The Levy County Sheriff’s Office, Community Relations Division, is offering a Teen Driver Improvement Program to all Levy County students who have a current Operators License or Learners Permit or who are about to get their Learners Permit.
The goal of this program is to educate the teen drivers of Levy County of the dangers of aggressive driving, distracted driving, impaired driving, and to reinforce the benefits of seatbelt use. These four issues have been found to be major causes of teen involved crashes, injuries and fatalities. This program is free of cost and is 4 hours in duration. This program consists of classroom instruction, videos, power point presentations and hands-on time during which the students will drive golf carts through a course to learn first hand the dangers of their choices they make while driving. This is a graphic presentation that will show students the human consequences of their driving choices. Parent waivers are required due to the graphic nature of the presentation. Waivers are available online at, and then click on the Teen Driver Improvement Icon on left side of screen. All students will be required to pre-register for the class by calling Lt. Sean Mullins or Sgt. Max Long at 352-486-5111 ext 276 or via e-mail or This class has a minimum of 5 students for the class to take place so these dates are tentative. ALL CLASSES BEGIN AT 9:00 AM
