Teen Driver Improvement 2015

Levy County Teen Driver Improvement Program




The Levy County Sheriff’s Office and the Community Relations Division, is offering
a Teen Driver Improvement Program to all Levy County students who have a current Operators License, Learners Permit or who are about to get their Learners Permit.

The goal of this program is to educate the teenage 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.
The progam is a graphic presentation that will show students the human consequences of their driving choices. Parental waivers are required due to the graphic nature of the presentation. Waivers are available and online at, and then click on the Teen Driver Improvement Icon on left side of screen, and at school. All students will be required to pre-register for the class by calling Lt.Shawn Hunt or Sgt.Max Long at (352) 486-5111 or via our e-mail at or This class has a minimum requirement of 4 students for each class to take place, so these dates are tentative.
