Free Course Teaches Safe Driving Skills to Young Drivers


The Pocatello Police Department is offering the innovative defensive driving course “Alive at 25” to young drivers. The free class is open to drivers 15 to 24 years of age and will be on Saturday, February 3 from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the Pocatello Police training room at 911 N. 7th Avenue in Pocatello. While there is no charge for the training, participants must register online in advance at

“The goal of the course is to teach safe driving practices to the age group most likely to be involved in an accident,” said Dianne Brush, Community Services Coordinator.

The course helps young drivers learn and adopt safe driving practices, take responsibility for personal behavior in various driving situations and be more aware of typical driving hazards. The course will consist of group discussions, role-playing, short lectures and workbook exercises, to help drivers develop convictions and strategies that will keep them safer on the road.

This free course is being taught by two former school resource officers who are among only a few officers in the State of Idaho trained to teach this course. The “Alive at 25” program is offered in cooperation with the Idaho Transportation Department, the Colorado State Patrol Family Foundation, and the National Safety Council.

Since the classes fill up quickly, this course will be offered again on Saturday, March 3 at 9 a.m.
