'Drive to Stay Alive' driving program rescheduled

KENTUCKY (FOX19) - Teen drivers enrolled in the 'Drive to Stay Alive' (D2SA) program will have to take the course in April 2014 due to unplanned issues, according to the Kentucky State Police (KPS).

The program was originally planned for August 28 – September 1 but the agency reports that it collided with "circumstances beyond its control" and "unforeseen logistical issues" that prevents it from launching on its original date.

Applicants who have previously enrolled in the program will remain on file and be selected first for the sessions that are rescheduled for April 9 – 13, 2014. New applicants will continue to be accepted through March 1, 2014.

The D2SA program is a driving academy targeted to teen drivers. Over a course of four days, participates will learn hand-on skills in real-life motor vehicle situations combined with classroom studies taught by skilled driving instructors.
