Urgent: In an effort to ensure the health and wellbeing of our instructors and students during the coronavirus pandemic, the National Safety Council in conjunction with the Orange County Traffic Safety Program has canceled all classroom Alive at 25 court-ordered driver safety classes through April 30. If you already are enrolled in one of these classes through April 30, you should have received a call or email indicating the course cancelation. We are monitoring the situation closely and will begin teaching classroom courses again when it is safe to resume.

Alive at 25® targets drivers 16 to 24 years of age and shows them how to take greater responsibility for their driving behavior. Alive at 25 also is an excellent complement to standard driver education programs. Where driver education teaches the mechanics of the vehicle, road handling and state laws, Alive at 25 focuses on behavior, decision making, consequences and positive choices.
While drivers 24 and younger account for only 13% of all licensed drivers, they cause 27% of all motor vehicle collisions and 21% of all fatal motor vehicle crashes. Alive at 25 is a highly interactive, four-hour course that helps young drivers take greater responsibility for their driving.
Students will learn:
Courses are held from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. weeknights at the Orange County Fire Training Center, 9 Training Center Lane, New Hampton, NY.
“NSC Alive at 25 has been part of our traffic safety program since 2012. During our partnership with NSC, local traffic courts have referred over 5,265 drivers as part of a mandatory sentencing requirement. Our feedback from courts, as well as the teen drivers and parents, has been overwhelmingly positive. I highly recommend counties consider this valuable prevention and education program as part of their program.”
