Mercy - Alive at 25 - Defensive Driving Course
Proven To Help Teach Young Adults To Drive Safe And Responsibly

Alive at 25 is a highly-interactive course developed by the National Safety Council that helps young adults under the age of 25 take greater responsibility for their driving by focusing on behavior, judgment, and decision making. This free 4-hour classroom course teaches young drivers that there are consequences to their driving behavior and provides the tools for making positive choices.
 What Participants Will Learn

  • People in their age group are more likely to be hurt or killed in a vehicle crash
  • Inexperience, distractions, and peer pressure cause unique driving hazards
  • Speeding, alcohol, and “party drugs” greatly increase their risk of death
  • As a driver or passenger, they can greatly reduce their risk by taking control
  • Committing to changing their driving behavior makes personal, legal and financial sense

Hear From Past Participants
Alive at 25:

  • “Opened my eyes to how dangerous driving really is.”
  • “Made me more aware of what I am able to control in my driving.”
  • “Brings fresh information to the forefront of my mind to help me really be prepared before I hit the road.”
