The Florida Sheriffs Association is licensed statewide by the Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles as a Commercial Driving School, license #3975. Each law enforcement instructor who teaches the Teen Driver Challenge is also licensed, under the FSA License, as a school instructor. Each new instructor goes through a rigorous "Train the Trainer" class with an original team member, or sits through an actual program under an established program's instructor. The original team members are responsible for TDC instructor training in various areas throughout the state.
Each student who enrolls in the program will benefit from the special knowledge and skills of these certified law enforcement instructors - not only related to vehicle operation but also cause-and-effect events related to driving.
