Teen Driving Academy Starts This Month in Capital

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- Kentucky State Police are holding the teen driving academy known as "Drive to Stay Alive" again this summer, and the deadline to apply is approaching.

The program is specifically geared toward teenagers, and they must be 16 years old or older, be a licensed driver, have good communication skills and leadership traits and have school permission to participate.

State police say the course teaches skills that could save a participant's life, including actual motor vehicle situations and classroom studies.

There's no fee for the program, but space is limited. For more information or to apply by the Aug. 16 deadline, visit the links below.

The course will be Aug. 28 to Sept. 1.
