The Program

Driver’s Edge is a free half-day program for drivers ages 21 and younger (with a valid license or permit) that teaches real life emergency avoidance and response techniques and overall driver safety. Taught by true driving professionals through a unique combination of behind the wheel and classroom experiences, Edge was specifically developed to address the unacceptably high number of youth related automobile collisions and fatalities that occur each year.

Programs are conducted on an annual National Tour (visiting multiple cities throughout the United States) and on an ongoing basis in Las Vegas, Nevada, the home of Driver’s Edge.
