Since 2005, Firestone Complete Auto Care has been a proud national sponsor of Driver’s Edge, a non-profit organization that offers free educational programs to young drivers (ages 15-21). Driver's Edge teaches real life emergency avoidance and response techniques and overall driver safety. This innovative youth program is taught with an “MTV flavor” by professional race car drivers and defensive driving instructors.
Driver’s Edge participants receive behind-the-wheel defensive driving instruction on skid control, evasive lane change maneuvers, anti-lock braking skills and panic-braking techniques and learn about impaired driving awareness and seat belt safety from local law enforcement. In addition, thanks to the sponsorship of Firestone Complete Auto Care, students participate in a vehicle maintenance and safety session based on our award-winning Car Care Academy program.
Since its inception, Driver’s Edge has educated more than 60,000 young drivers and their parents.
If you’re interested in having a teen participate, please have him or her register at www.driversedge.org.
