Empower your teen driver with the confidence to handle the open road and return home safely


Teen driver safety is not just a parental or law enforcement responsibility, it’s a community and nationwide responsibility. Engaging all sectors of the community in helping to address teen driver safety is essential not just for teens, but everyone on the road.

The loss of any life in a traffic collision is tragic, but the death of a young driver is especially distressing.

Although we see and hear about many of the risks teens encounter every day, one of the greatest dangers they face is being killed or injured in a motor vehicle collision. In fact, motor vehicle collisions continue to be the leading cause of death among our teens. 

That is why Kentucky Safe Driver (KSD), the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet’s Division of Driver’s Licensing, the National Safety Council (NSC) and many other public and private sectors have joined forces with high schools and local businesses across Kentucky to ensure that novice drivers survive their most dangerous driving years.

Alive at 25 is an innovative four-hour defensive-driving course developed by the NSC to prevent traffic violations, collisions and fatalities among young drivers and is exclusively taught by KSD. KSD offers this class FREE to new drivers who are taking the course to meet their driver training program requirement for the state’s Graduated Driver Licensing Program.

All KSD programs utilize multi-agency law enforcement teams of current and retired state, county and city police officers who are committed professionals dedicated to saving the lives of young drivers through education. As law enforcement professionals, Alive at 25 instructors bring unique perspectives and experiences that afford their students the greatest of opportunities for learning and understanding. Knowing what it’s like to tell a parent that their teen has been killed or seriously injured in a car crash or able to express their sincere desire for young adults to better understand and avoid the life-changing emotional, criminal and civil consequences to poor decision-making lends itself to the success of this course.
