Sign Up for the Teen Driver Challenge

TeenDriverChallengeFlyer_2024 (2)Our Teen Driver Challenge is happening on Saturday, July 13th, starting at 8:00 am, right here at the DeSoto County Sheriff's Office. Is your teen ready to take their driving skills to the next level? This free course is open to teens aged 15 to 19 who hold a valid learner's permit or driver's license.

Our program is tailored for teens with at least six months of driving experience. They'll get hands-on training navigating through our challenging obstacle course and learn invaluable skills through various driving conditions.

Spaces are limited to just 12 attendees, so don't delay! Secure your teen's spot today. Applications are available in the lobby at the Sheriff's Office, 208 E Cypress St. Arcadia, FL 34266, or from Sgt. Santos at DeSoto High School.
