-A A +A

Kentucky State Police has rescheduled its "Drive To Stay Alive" teen driving academy that was scheduled for Aug. 28 through Sept. 1. The academy will now be next April.

Because of circumstances beyond its control and unforeseen logistical issues, the agency is moving the date to April 9 through April 13.

Applications that have already been submitted will remain on file and be selected first for the April session.

Also, new applications will continue to be accepted through March 1.

The academy is an innovative program targeted directly at teenage drivers.

Participants will spend four days learning skills that may save their life, including hands-on skills in actual motor vehicle situations combined with classroom studies.

KSP utilizes skilled driving instructors that take teen participants through a variety of obstacles while coaching them the correct way to control a vehicle in different driving scenarios.
