The Hernando County Sheriff’s Office Teen Driver Challenge is on. Join Sheriff Nienhuis and friends and learn how to drive defensively and control your vehicle like a pro.

The Sheriff’s two-day program is designed to provide young drivers, age 16, 17 and 18, with the knowledge and understanding of vehicle dynamics and human kinetics. Students will gain an in-depth knowledge about the forces created by an automobile and the effects of the forces on the human body.
