The Mopar Road Ready Powered by Dodge teen driving program is heading to Centerline, Michigan, where it will host a pair of two-day driver training and education classes. The program kicked off earlier this month in Indianapolis and will head to Bradenton, Florida following the Michigan dates.
The Road Ready program was developed by non-profit organization B.R.A.KE.S. (Be Responsible And Keep Everyone Safe) and the NHRA (National Hot Rod Association). The program aims to teach drivers ages 15-19 proper accident avoidance techniques and will also address topics such as distracted driving. Wet skid pad lessons will also be held, giving teen drivers a better feel for the road in low-grip conditions.
“With the help of our friends at the NHRA Motorsports Museum and B.R.A.K.E.S., we’re excited to bring another round of events to Center Line to educate even more teens so they can safely learn valuable defensive-driving skills in a controlled environment,” head of Mopar parts and service Pietro Gorlier said.
Road Ready is free of charge for teen drivers, however a $99 refundable deposit must be placed upon registration in order to secure a spot. Mopar says spots are filling up fast for the two Michigan dates, but interested parties may still register at this link. Morning Road Ready sessions will run from 8 a.m. until noon, with afternoon sessions running from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
